Paul’s trial before the Roman governor Felix demonstrates that his passion to see unbelieving people become committed followers of Jesus Christ surpassed even his longing for freedom.

Alistair Begg walks us through the charges of the high priest and Paul’s defense, noting the skillful way Paul used this challenging turn of events as an opportunity to once again share the Gospel.
