Acts 26:3

26:3 because you are especially 6  familiar with all the customs and controversial issues 7  of the Jews. Therefore I ask 8  you to listen to me patiently.

3 tn Grk “go up to,” but in this context a meeting is implied.

5 tn Or “point of controversy.” It is unclear whether this event parallels Gal 2:1-10 or that Gal 2 fits with Acts 11:30. More than likely Gal 2:1-10 is to be related to Acts 11:30.
