      1  The Jews accuse Paul before Festus.
     8  He answers for himself,
    11  and appeals unto Caesar.
    14  Afterwards Festus opens his matter to king Agrippa;
    23  and he is brought forth.
    25  Festus clears him of having done any thing worthy of death.

    - into.
       * Ac 23:34
    - the province.
      By the province, Judea is meant; for after the death of Herod
      Agrippa, Claudius thought it imprudent to trust  the
      government in the hands of his son Agrippa, who was then but
      seventeen years of age; and therefore, Cuspius Fadus was sent
      to be procurator.  And when afterwards Claudius had given to
      Agrippa the tetrarchy of Philip, he nevertheless kept the
      province of Judea in his own hands, and governed it by
      procurators sent from Rome.

    VERSE 10 
     - I stand.
      Every procurator represented the emperor in the province over
      which he presided; and as the seat of government was at
      Caesarea, Paul was before the tribunal where, as a Roman
      citizen, he ought to be judged.

       * Ac 16:37; 22:25 1Th 2:15
    - I appeal.
      An appeal to the emperor was the right of a Roman citizen, and
      was highly respected.  The Julian law condemned those
      civil officers, and others, as violaters of the public peace, who
      had put to death, tortured, scourged, imprisoned, or condemned
      any Roman citizen who had appealed to Caesar.  This law was so
      sacred and imperative, that, in the persecution under Trajan,
      Pliny would not attempt to put to death Roman citizens, who
      were proved to have turned Christians, but determined to send
      them to Rome, probably because they had appealed.

    VERSE 24 
     - King Agrippa.
      King Agrippa was the son of Herod Agrippa; who upon the death
      of his uncle Herod, king of Chalcis, A.D. 28, succeeded to his
      dominions, by the favor of the emperor Claudius.  Four years
      afterwards, Claudius removed him from that kingdom to a larger
      one; giving him the tetrarchy of Philip, that of Lysanias, and
      the province which Varus governed.  Nero afterwards added
      Julias in Peraea, Tarichaea, and Tiberias.  Claudius gave him
      the power of appointing the high priest among the Jews; and
      instances of his exercising this power may be seen in
      Josephus.  He was strongly attached to the Romans, and did
      every thing in his power to prevent the Jews from rebelling;
      and when he could not prevail, he united his troops to those
      of Titus, and assisted at the siege of Jerusalem.  After the
      ruin of his country, he retired with his sister Berenice to
      Rome where he died, aged 70, about A.D. 90.

       * :2,3,7

    - and that.
       * :11,12
    - Augustus.
      The honorable title of [Sebastos <4575>,] or Augustus, that
      is venerable or august, which was first conferred by the
      senate on Octavius Caesar, was afterwards assumed by succeeding
      Roman emperors.
    
    
    VERSE 26 
     - specially.
