Acts 25:13-27

Agrippa, in this passage, is King Agrippa II. He was 17 when his father, Agrippa I, died. Several years later, Agrippa began to oversee several areas, including Caesarea. Bernice was Agrippa’s sister. The two were making a customary visit to the Roman governor, Festus. Lots of names here—just remember this was all about Paul and the attempt of certain Jewish enemies to destroy his life and testimony.
