2 Paul was called, and Tertullus opened for the prosecution, 'Your Excellency, Felix, the unbroken peace we enjoy and the reforms this nation owes to your foresight

Acts 23:26 Acts 26:25 Luke 1:3
4 I do not want to take up too much of your time, but I urge you in your graciousness to give us a brief hearing.

11 As you can verify for yourself, it is no more than twelve days since I went up to Jerusalem on pilgrimage,
Acts 24:1 Acts 21:18 Acts 21:26-27 Acts 22:30 Acts 23:11 Acts 23:23 Acts 23:32-33
12 and it is not true that they ever found me arguing with anyone or stirring up the mob, either in the Temple, in the synagogues, or about the town;
Acts 25:8 Acts 24:18 Acts 28:17 Acts 24:5

Acts 25:7 1Pet 3:16
14 'What I do admit to you is this: it is according to the Way, which they describe as a sect, that I worship the God of my ancestors, retaining my belief in all points of the Law and in what is written in the prophets;
Acts 26:22 Acts 24:5 Acts 9:2 Acts 3:13 Acts 28:23 Acts 26:27 2Tim 1:3
15 and I hold the same hope in God as they do that there will be a resurrection of the upright and the wicked alike.

18 it was in connection with these that they found me in the Temple; I had been purified, and there was no crowd involved, and no disturbance.
Acts 21:26-30 Acts 26:21 Acts 24:12
19 But some Jews from Asia -- these are the ones who should have appeared before you and accused me of whatever they had against me.
Acts 23:30 Acts 25:16
20 At least let those who are present say what crime they held against me when I stood before the Sanhedrin,
21 unless it were to do with this single claim, when I stood up among them and called out, "It is about the resurrection of the dead that I am on trial before you today." '
Acts 23:6 Acts 4:2 Acts 26:6-8 Acts 28:20
22 At this, Felix, who was fairly well informed about the Way, adjourned the case, saying, 'When Lysias the tribune comes down I will give judgement about your case.'
Acts 18:20 Acts 24:6 Acts 24:10 Acts 24:14 Acts 24:24 Acts 25:26 Acts 26:3
23 He then gave orders to the centurion that Paul should be kept under arrest but free from restriction, and that none of his own people should be prevented from seeing to his needs.

Acts 20:21 Gal 2:16 1John 5:1 Acts 16:31 Acts 26:22 Gal 2:20 Gal 3:2

2Pet 1:6 Gal 5:23 Acts 10:42 John 16:8 Heb 9:27 1John 3:7 1John 3:10
