“And because I doubted of such manner of questions, I asked him whether he would go to Jerusalem, and there be judged of these matters.”
King James Version (KJV)
25:18 Such things as I supposed - From their passion and vehemence.
25:19 But had certain questions - How coldly does he mention the things of the last importance! And about one Jesus - Thus does Festus speak of Him, to whom every knee shall bow! Whom Paul affirmed to be alive - And was this a doubtful question? But why, O Festus, didst thou doubt concerning it? Only because thou didst not search into the evidence of it. Otherwise that evidence might have opened to thee, till it had grown up into full conviction; and thy illustrious prisoner have led thee into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
