Bible: Acts 18:6-17
Paul Before the Proconsul Gallio
18:12 Now while Gallio 19 was proconsul 20 of Achaia, 21 the Jews attacked Paul together 22 and brought him before the judgment seat, 23 18:13 saying, “This man is persuading 24 people to worship God in a way contrary to 25 the law!” 18:14 But just as Paul was about to speak, 26 Gallio said to the Jews, “If it were a matter of some crime or serious piece of villainy, 27 I would have been justified in accepting the complaint 28 of you Jews, 29 18:15 but since it concerns points of disagreement 30 about words and names and your own law, settle 31 it yourselves. I will not be 32 a judge of these things!” 18:16 Then he had them forced away 33 from the judgment seat. 34 18:17 So they all seized Sosthenes, the president of the synagogue, 35 and began to beat 36 him in front of the judgment seat. 37 Yet none of these things were of any concern 38 to Gallio.
