Bible: Acts 24:10-16

Paul’s Defense Before Felix

24:10 When the governor gestured for him to speak, Paul replied, “Because I know 1  that you have been a judge over this nation for many years, I confidently make my defense. 2  24:11 As you can verify 3  for yourself, not more than twelve days ago 4  I went up to Jerusalem 5  to worship. 24:12 They did not find me arguing 6  with anyone or stirring up a crowd 7  in the temple courts 8  or in the synagogues 9  or throughout the city, 10  24:13 nor can they prove 11  to you the things 12  they are accusing me of doing. 13  24:14 But I confess this to you, that I worship 14  the God of our ancestors 15  according to the Way (which they call a sect), believing everything that is according to the law 16  and that is written in the prophets. 24:15 I have 17  a hope in God (a hope 18  that 19  these men 20  themselves accept too) that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous. 21  24:16 This is the reason 22  I do my best to always 23  have a clear 24  conscience toward God and toward people. 25
