24:2 When he was called, Tertullus began to accuse him, saying, "Seeing that by you we enjoy much peace, and that excellent measures are coming to this nation,
24:3 we accept it in all ways and in all places, most excellent Felix, with all thankfulness.
24:5 For we have found this man a pestilent fellow, and an instigator of insurrections among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes.
24:6 He even tried to profane the temple. We arrested him.

24:9 The Jews also joined in the attack, affirming that these things were so.
24:11 seeing that you can recognize that it is not more than twelve days since I went up to worship at Jerusalem.
24:12 In the temple they didn`t find me disputing with anyone or stirring up a crowd, either in the synagogues, or in the city.
24:13 Nor can they prove to you the things whereof they now accuse me.
24:14 But this I confess to you, that after the Way, which they call a sect, so I serve the God of our fathers, believing all things which are according to the law, and which are written in the prophets;
24:15 having hope toward God, which these also themselves look for, that there will be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.
24:17 Now after some years, I came to bring alms to my nation, and offerings;
24:18 amid which they found me purified in the temple, with no crowd, nor yet with tumult. But certain Jews from Asia --
24:19 who ought to have been here before you, and to make accusation, if they had anything against me.
24:20 Or else let these men themselves say what injustice they found in me when I stood before the council,
24:21 unless it is for this one thing that I cried standing among them, `Concerning the resurrection of the dead I am being judged before you today!`"
24:25 As he reasoned about righteousness, self-control, and the judgment to come, Felix was terrified, and answered, "Go your way for this time, and when it is convenient for me, I will call you to me."
