Paul passes from the hands of Felix to Festus, but his situation doesn’t improve. This in Acts 25, our reading for today, and base text for your notes to share in the comments section below. Previous reading are listed under the tag, “Study Bible notes.” This chapter contains:
- Jews ask Festus to judge Paul soon after his taking office (1-5)
- On Festus’ desire to placate Jews, Paul appeals to Caesar (6-12)
- Festus asks Agrippa’s opinion (13-22)
- Paul called before King Agrippa (23-27)
Tomorrow, of course, we’ll read Paul’s discourse before Agrippa, but today’s reading sets the scene for his appearance before the king. The movements in this chapter are restricted from Caesarea to Jerusalem and back.
