24:5 For we have found this man to be a troublemaker, one who stirs up riots among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes.
24:6 He even tried to desecrate the temple, so we arrested him.
24:13 nor can they prove to you the things they are accusing me of doing.
24:14 But I confess this to you, that I worship the God of our ancestors according to the Way (which they call a sect), believing everything that is according to the law and that is written in the prophets.
24:15 I have a hope in God (a hope that these men themselves accept too) that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.
24:16 This is the reason I do my best to always have a clear conscience toward God and toward people.
24:17 After several years I came to bring to my people gifts for the poor and to present offerings,
24:18 which I was doing when they found me in the temple, ritually purified, without a crowd or a disturbance.
24:19 But there are some Jews from the province of Asia who should be here before you and bring charges, if they have anything against me.
24:20 Or these men here should tell what crime they found me guilty of when I stood before the council,
24:21 other than this one thing I shouted out while I stood before them: ‘I am on trial before you today concerning the resurrection of the dead.’”
25:8 Paul said in his defense, “I have committed no offense against the Jewish law or against the temple or against Caesar.”
