Paul and King Agrippa Truth
Defensive Paul Quotes From Paul the Apostle
Hello again, Daily Bread readers. We've been studying about the
accusations against Paul, and although it's only been a few chapters
to us since he's been imprisoned, awaiting a chance to defend
himself, over two years have passed since the Jewish people first
accused him of treason and profaning the Temple. Paul, being shuffled
from one jurisdiction to another, appeals to Caesar in his discontent.
Festus is the new governor now, and he doesn't find any fault in
Paul, so when his friend king Agrippa comes to visit him, Festus
tells him about Paul, and Agrippa is curious to hear Paul's case.
There is a big to do, because of the king's presence (king Agrippa
was Herod's son) and all the Jewish people gather to make their

Paul and King Agrippa Speech
Paul Quotes From Paul the Apostle Trial
2 I think myself happy, king Agrippa, because I shall
answer for myself this day before thee touching all the things
whereof I am accused of the Jews:
3 Especially because I know thee to be expert in all
customs and questions which are among the Jews: wherefore I beseech
thee to hear me patiently.
4 My manner of life from my youth, which was at the first
among mine own nation at Jerusalem, know all the Jews;
5 Which knew me from the beginning, if they would testify,
that after the most straitest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee.
6 And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the
promise made of God, unto our fathers:
7 Unto which promise our twelve tribes, instantly serving
God day and night, hope to come. For which hope's sake, king Agrippa,
I am accused of the Jews.
8 Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you,
that God should raise the dead?
9 I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many
things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth.
10 Which thing I also did in Jerusalem: and many of the
Saints did I shut up in prison, having received authority from the
chief priests; and when they were put to death, I gave my voice
11 And I punished them oft in every synagogue, and
compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly mad against them,
I persecuted them even unto strange cities.
12 Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and
commission from the chief priests,
13 At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from
Heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and
them which journeyed with me.
14 And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a
voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to
kick against the pricks.
15 And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And He said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared
unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness
both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the
which I will appear unto thee;
17 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles,
unto whom now I send thee,
18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to
light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive
forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified
by faith that is in me.
19 Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto
the Heavenly vision:
20 But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at
Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the
Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet
21 For these causes the Jews caught me in the Temple, and
went about to kill me.
22 Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto
this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other
things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come:
23 That Christ should suffer, and that He should be the
first that should rise from the dead, and should shew light unto the
people, and to the Gentiles.
Paul and King Agrippa Share Facts
Paul Quotes From Paul the Apostle Journey
As Paul spoke for himself, Festus said with a loud voice, Paul,
you're insane, too much learning makes you crazy. But Paul answered
I am not crazy, most noble Festus, but I speak words of Truth and
sanity. Then Paul directed his response to Agrippa, saying, The king
understands these things, before whom I speak freely: I am certain
that none of these things are hidden from him; for this thing was not
done in secret. King Agrippa, do you believe the prophets? I know
that you believe.
Then Agrippa said to Paul, You almost persuade me to become a
Christian. And Paul said:
I wish to God, that not only you, but also, all that hear me this
day, were both almost persuaded, and altogether persuaded, such as I
am, except for these chains.

Paul Quotes From Paul the Apostle in Court
When he said this, the king stood up, and the governor, and Bernice,
and those who sat with them. And they had a little side-bar, saying,
This man does nothing worthy of death or of prison. Then Agrippa said
to Festus, This man might have been set free, if he hadn't appealed
You can always sense that the Holy Spirit was guiding Paul whenever
he spoke. How intelligent to show that he was just proving what the
prophets said to be true, because if anyone disagreed, they would be
treasonous as well. Well, in this day and age, people have the right
to remain silent, but Paul, having an opportunity to spread the
Gospel, no matter when or where, found it very suitable to share the
Truth, and as always, delivered his message with confidence and
power, and yet at the same time, as a humble servant to the Lord.
