Acts 24:1

Context
The Accusations Against Paul

24:1 After five days the high priest Ananias 1  came down with some elders and an attorney 2  named 3  Tertullus, and they 4  brought formal charges 5  against Paul to the governor.

Acts 25:2

Context
25:2 So the chief priests and the most prominent men 6  of the Jews brought formal charges 7  against Paul to him.

1 sn Ananias was in office from a.d. 47-59.

2 tn The term refers to a professional advocate (BDAG 905 s.v. ῥήτωρ).

3 tn Grk “an attorney, a certain Tertullus.”

4 tn Grk “who” (plural). Because in English the relative pronoun “who” could be understood to refer only to the attorney Tertullus and not to the entire group, it has been replaced with the third person plural pronoun “they.” “And” has been supplied to provide the connection to the preceding clause.

5 tn BDAG 326 s.v. ἐμφανίζω 3 has “. τινὶ κατά τινος bring formal charges against someoneAc 24:1; 25:2.”

6 tn BDAG 893-94 s.v. πρῶτος 2.a.β has “οἱ πρῶτοι the most prominent men, the leading men w. gen. of the place…or of a group…οἱ πρ. τοῦ λαοῦLk 19:47; cp. Ac 25:2; 28:17.”

7 tn BDAG 326 s.v. ἐμφανίζω 3 has “. τινὶ κατά τινος bring formal charges against someoneAc 24:1; 25:2.”

sn Note how quickly the Jewish leadership went after Paul: They brought formal charges against him within three days of Festus’ arrival in the province.
