After Felix rejects the Gospel, Paul stands trial before his successor, Festus, the new Governor of Caesarea. As a favor to the Jews, Festus wanted to send Paul to Jerusalem to be tried, but Paul appealed to Caesar in Rome.
From this account, we see the world’s continuing hatred of Christ and of Christians when they are faithful to declare the Gospel. We also see God’s protection of His flock by the civil authority that He has put in place. If Paul had not been able to appeal to Ceasar, he almost certainly would have been put to death unjustly.
