Acts 251 The Jews accuse Paul before Festus.8 He answers for himself,11 and appeals unto Caesar.14 Afterwards Festus opens his matter to king Agrippa;23 and he is brought forth.25 Festus clears him of having done any thing worthy of death. into.23:34the province.By the province, Judea is meant; for after the death of Herod Agrippa, Claudius thought it imprudent to trust the government in the hands of his son Agrippa, who was then but seventeen years of age; and therefore, Cuspius Fadus was sent to be procurator. And when afterwards Claudius had given to Agrippa the tetrarchy of Philip, he nevertheless kept the province of Judea in his own hands, and governed it by procurators sent from Rome. he.5; 18:22; 21:15 15; 24:1; Job 31:31; Pr 4:16; Ro 3:12-19 desired.9:2; 1Sa 23:19-21; Jer 38:4; Mr 6:23-25; Lu 23:8-24laying.23:12-15; 26:9-11; Ps 37:32,33; 64:2-6; 140:1-5; Jer 18:18; Joh 16:3Ro 3:8 4 them.16; 23:30; 24:8if.18,19,25; 18:14; 1Sa 24:11,12; Ps 7:3-5; Joh 18:29,30 more than ten days. or, as some copies read no more thaneight or ten days. sitting. 10,17; 18:12-17; Mt 27:19; Joh 19:13; 2Co 5:10; Jas 2:6 and laid.24; 21:28; 24:5,6,13; Ezr 4:15; Es 3:8; Ps 27:12; 35:11; Mt 5:11,12Mt 26:60-62; Mr 15:3,4; Lu 23:2,10; 1Pe 4:14-16 Neither.10; 6:13,14; 23:1; 24:6,12,17-21; 28:17,21; Ge 40:15; Jer 37:18Da 6:22; 2Co 1:12 willing.3,20; 12:3; 24:27; Mr 15:15 I stand.Every procurator represented the emperor in the province over which he presided; and as the seat of government was at Cesarea, St. Paul was before the tribunal where, as a Roman citizen, he ought to be judged. 16:37,38; 22:25-28as thou.25; 23:29; 26:31; 28:18; Mt 27:18,23,24; 2Co 4:2 if I.18:14; Jos 22:22; 1Sa 12:3-5; Job 31:21,38-40; Ps 7:3-5no man.16:37; 22:25; 1Th 2:15I appeal.An appeal to the emperor was the right of a Roman citizen, and was highly respected. The Julian law condemned those magistrates, and others, as violaters of the public peace, who had put to death, tortured, scourged, imprisoned, or condemned any Roman citizen who had appealed to Cesar. This law was so sacred and imperative, that, in the persecution under Trajan, Pliny would not attempt to put to death Roman citizens, who were proved to have turned Christians, but determined to send them to Rome, probably because they had appealed. 10,25; 26:32; 28:19; 1Sa 27:1 unto Cesar shalt.21; 19:21; 23:11; 26:32; 27:1; 28:16; Ps 76:10; Isa 46:10,11; La 3:37Da 4:35; Ro 15:28,29; Php 1:12-14,20 king.22,23; 26:1,27,28to.1Sa 13:10; 25:14; 2Sa 8:10; 2Ki 10:13; Mr 15:18 There.24:27 when.1-3; Es 3:9; Lu 18:3-5; 23:23 It is not.4,5and have.26:1; De 17:4; 19:17,18; Pr 18:13,17; Joh 7:51 without.6 18 certain.7; 18:15,19; 23:29superstition.17:22,23which.1:22; 2:32; 17:31; 26:22,23; 1Co 15:3,4,14-20; Re 1:18 doubted of such manner of questions. or, was doubtful how toenquire hereof, etc. I asked. 9 had.10; 26:32; 2Ti 4:16hearing. or, judgment.

Four years afterwards, Claudius removed him from that kingdom to a larger one; giving him the tetrarchy of Philip, that of Lysanias, and the province which Varus governed. Nero afterwards added Julias in Peraea, Tarichaea, and Tiberias. Claudius gave him the power of appointing the high priest among the Jews; and instances of his exercising this power may be seen in Josephus. He was strongly attached to the Romans, and did every thing in his power to prevent the Jews from rebelling; and when he could not prevail, he united his troops to those of Titus, and assisted at the siege of Jerusalem. After the ruin of his country, he retired with his sister Berenice to Rome where he died, aged 70, about A.D. 90. about.2,3,7that he.22:22; Lu 23:21-23 committed.23:9,29; 26:31; Lu 23:4,14; Joh 18:38and that.11,12Augustus.The honourable title of [Sebastos ,] or Augustus, that is venerable or august, which was first conferred by the senate on Octavius Caesar, was afterwards assumed by succeeding Roman emperors. specially.26:2,3 Pr 18:13; Joh 7:51
