Robertson Word Pictures - Acts 26:31 - 26:31

(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

They spake one to another (elaloun pros allēlous). Imperfect active, describing the eager conversation of the dignitaries about Paul’s wonderful speech.

Nothing worthy of death or bonds (ouden thanatou ē desmōn axion). This is the unanimous conclusion of all these dignitaries (Romans, Jews, Greeks) as it was of Festus before (Act 25:25). But Paul had not won any of them to Christ. The conclusion leaves Festus in a predicament. Why had he not set Paul free before this?
