Acts 25:19 But had certain questions against him of their own superstition, and of one Jesus, which was dead, whom Paul affirmed to be alive.

TEACHING – Just a few notes- these past few chapters are simply covering Paul’s appeals thru the local court system [Sanhedrin] and going up the ladder to the top court of the land- Caesar of Rome.

The caesar at this time- is Nero- http://www.history.com/topics/ancient-history/nero
Nero was one of the worst persecutors of the early church- yet Paul took his case to him.

At this stage Nero was not ‘as bad’ as we know him to be later on.
He actually will martyr both Paul and Peter later on.
Yet at this stage of the game he was influenced by Seneca- a Stoic philosopher- https://dailystoic.com/seneca/

Though the Stoics were not considered Christians- they did indeed have moral elements to their teaching.
Self denial- stuff like that.

So it would not be strange for Paul to take his case to him.
Another point-
Paul has been sitting in the ‘county jail’ for 2 years by now.
Governor Felix left office- and festus took his place.

So the case is reviewed by the new governor-
And after 2 years- the high priest at Jerusalem [the top judge in the county] still wants to kill Paul!
We see a lot of corruption in the system- and how those who hold seats of authority- positions the public should be able to respect- yet these same people are some of the most corrupt of the day.

Yet- we also see Festus- and in his dealings with Paul- he does what is right.
The local court out of Jerusalem wants Festus to bring Paul to them- so they could carry out the plot to kill Paul.

Paul is aware of the plot- for 2 years now.
And he appeals his case to Rome- and Festus takes the appeal.
I’ll add my past teaching below- but wanted to simply give this update-
