Those Were The Days – Welcome To Favor Country

Acts 25:1-12 - Welcome To Favor Country


The chief priests want a favor, Festus wants to give it. Meanwhile, Paul gets to enjoy the much better favor of God.


Acts 25:1-12     Isaiah 54:17     Acts 28:19


Some criticize Paul for appealing to Caesar. They say it was a guaranteed death sentence. The truth is, Paul would be acquitted at his first trial. And though we remember Nero as a world class madman, at this point in his reign he wasn’t crazy. So, it makes a lot of sense that Paul would use this right to move himself toward Rome, which was the assignment Christ Himself had given in chapter 23. Ultimately, Paul will say that he felt “compelled” to make this appeal.”
