Instead, they had some points of dispute with him about their own religion and about a dead man named Jesus who Paul claimed was alive. I was at a loss how to investigate such matters; so I asked if he would be willing to go to Jerusalem and stand trial there on these charges.
Festus was “at a loss” how to investigate the resurrection of Jesus. Centuries later, many leaders still have the same pattern of how to determine if Jesus is alive. But, this I am certain. . .Jesus is alive and has saved me from eternal death!!!
