V.13-27 A higher authority, King Agrippa and his wife, come to Caesarea. To them governor Festus relates Paul’s case. The king decided he would like to see Paul himself. (Read Acts 9:1515But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: (Acts 9:15)). This verse is fulfilled! When we read verse 11 of our chapter, we might have wondered if Paul wasn’t going too far in appealing to Caesar in Rome, but just think of these results: Paul preached (1) to the people at Jerusalem (22:1-6); (2) to the Jewish leaders (23:1-6); (3) to Felix and the Roman soldiers (24:10-21); (4) to Felix and Drusilla privately (24:24-25); (5) to many others who had free access to visit Paul (24:23) (6) to Festus (25:10); (7) to Festus, Agrippa and Bernice and the officers and the court there (25:23); (8) to the sailors and passengers on the voyage to Rome (ch. 27); (9) to the chief and people of Malta, Melita (28:7-10); (10) and lastly, the climax of all, to the capital of the world (28:16-31).
