ACTS-8 - The Gospel To Rome
The apostle Paul said “I appeal to Caesar.” And to that Festus said, “To Caesar you've appealed, to Caesar you shall go,” Acts 25:11-12.
We welcome you to the final chapters in our study of the book of Acts. We hope that you’ll get your Bible handy and stay tuned with us as we think about the climax of this great book in these final chapters.
In Acts chapter 26 Paul is now going to be before Agrippa ready to preach the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I want you to notice the mindset of which Paul approaches, his defense of Christianity before this leader, who has Paul's hands or Paul's life is very hand. Look in Acts 26:2. The Bible records “So Paul stretched out his hand and answered for himself, ‘I think myself happy, King Agrippa, because today I shall answer for myself before you concerning all the things which I'm accused by the Jews.’” How did Paul feel about standing before this dignitary, this political leader, who could snuff out Paul's life if he wanted to? Paul said, “I'm happy to be here today to give a defense of my life and of Christianity.”
