To the most excellent governor Felix:
27 tThis man was seized by the Jews and was about to be killed by them. Coming with the troops I rescued him, having learned that he was a Roman. 28 uAnd when I wanted to know the reason they accused him, I brought him before their council. 29 I found out that he was accused vconcerning questions of their law, wbut had nothing charged against him deserving of death or chains. 30 And xwhen it was told me that 4the Jews lay in wait for the man, I sent him immediately to you, and yalso commanded his accusers to state before you the charges against him.
