IC—Paul on the Witness Stand.
YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOP-
IC—Paul Defends His Life Work.
I. Paul Before Felix (24).
1. The accusation against him (vv.
This was made by Tertullus, per-
haps a Roman lawyer employed by
(1) A pestilent fellow (v. lij. This
would indicate a fellow utterly basa
and corrupt—a plague.
(2) An inciter of rebellion, a lover
of sedition (v. 5). This they hoped
would bring him Into conflict with
the Roman power.
(3) That he was ringleader of A
sect (v. 5). This was designed to
throw contempt and suspicion upon
(4) That he had profaned the
temple (v. C). ,
2. Paul's defense (vv. 10-21).
(1) His frankness and courtesy
(v. 10). He gave-; recognition to the
fact that Felix had been ruler long
enough to be able to judge justly, as
the habits and ways of the Jews were
familiar to him.
(2) The charges made (vv. 11-20).
a. The charge of sedition denied
(vv. 11, 12). The falsity of (his he
shewed by the fact that the time was
too short. Besides, his conduct showed
b. The charge of heresy (vv. 14-10).
This he made by a confession and a
denial, lie admitted that he was of
this "way," which they called heresy,
but denied that Christians were schis-
matic. He showed that his actions
were clearly in keeping with the He-
brew religion, that he worshiped the
same God (v. 14), fully believed In
the same Scriptures (v. 14), and had
the same hope of the resurrection of
c. The charge of sacrilege (vv. 17-
21). This he refuted by saying that
he had come all the way from Greece
to worship at the feast (v. 17), and
had brought alms for his nation.
3. Felix trembles before Paul (vy.
Wicked as Felix was, Paul's manner
won his favor, though he did not re-
lease him. His sentence was "Indul-
gent imprisonment," which kept him
free from his enemies while under
Roman protection. When brought be-
fore Felix, Paul reasoned of righteous-
ness, self-control and judgment to
come. Felix trembled.
II. Paul Before Festus (25:1-12).
More than two years had elapsed
since the trial before Felix, but Jewish
hatred did not abate. As soon as Fes-
tus, the new governor, went to Jeru-
salem, he was besieged with accusa-
tions against Paul. His accusers de-
sired that ho be brought to Jerusalem
for trial, intending to lie In wnlt
and kill him on the way. Festus re-
fused their request but agreed to give
them an opportunity to go down to
Caesaren to accuse hint. They were
unable to prove anything against him.
Festus, willing to please the Jews,
proposed to send him to Jerusalem
for trial. Seeing that it was Impos-
sible to get justice before Festus, Paul
made use of his right as a Roman
citizen and appealed to Caesar.
III. Paul Before Agrippa (Acts
1. The occasion (25:13-27).
This was the visit of Agrippa and
Bernice to Festus. Upon their nrrivnl
they expressed a desire to hear Paul.
2. Paul's defense before Agrippa
He Introduced his defense (vv. 1-3)
by expressing his delight In now tell-
Ing his case to one who could follow
his line of argument, for Agrippa was
an expert in questions concerning the
He then Indicated his manner of
life (vv. 4-12) by showing that he had
lived In the strictest accord with the
most rigid sect of the Jews. He then
indicated his supernatural conversion
(vv. 13-15). After his conversion he
was commissioned by Christ (vv. 10-
18). As soon as he had received his
commission he rendered obedience
(vv. 10-23). Seeing how thoroughly In
earnest Paul was, Festus Interrupted
him and attempted to account for his
enthusiasm by attributing It to the
ravings of an unbalanced mind. De-
spite this, he made his appeal to
Agrippa (vv. 25-27). He courageous-
ly appealed to Agrlppn's knowledge of
the work of Jesus and of the prophets.
Agrippa was so Impressed by Paul's
appeal that he declared he was almost ►
persuadpd to be a Christian.

How to Get Rid of a Severe Cold
"Last August I took a very severe
cold and it seemed that I couldn't
break it up. I got so bad that I was
confined to my bed for five weeks,
doctoring all the time without getting
any relief. I had no appetite, natural-
ly lost flesh. In fact, I had given up
nil hopes of ever getting any belter.
"A friend recommended Milks Emul-
sion and I commenced its use. When
able to leave my bed I weighed 111
pounds. Now, after taking Milks Emul-
sion five weeks, I weigh 125 pounds,
feel better than I have felt in two
years, can eat anything, have no ef-
fects of the cold and work every day.
I thank God and Milks Emulsion for
restoring my health." MRS. MARGA-
