Acts 25:24

25:24 Then Festus 1  said, “King Agrippa, 2  and all you who are present here with us, you see this man about whom the entire Jewish populace 3  petitioned 4  me both in Jerusalem 5  and here, 6  shouting loudly 7  that he ought not to live any longer.

1 sn See the note on Porcius Festus in 24:27.

2 sn See the note on King Agrippa in 25:13.

3 tn Probably best understood as rhetorical hyperbole. BDAG 825 s.v. πλῆθος 2.b.γ states, “people, populace, populationτὸ πλῆθος the populaceἅπαν τὸ πλ. τῶν ᾿Ιουδαίων Ac 25:24.” However, the actions of the leadership are seen by Luke as representing the actions of the entire nation, so the remark is not inaccurate.

4 tn Or “appealed to” (BDAG 341 s.v. ἐντυγχάνω 1.a).

5 map For location see Map5 B1; Map6 F3; Map7 E2; Map8 F2; Map10 B3; JP1 F4; JP2 F4; JP3 F4; JP4 F4.

6 sn Here means “here in Caesarea.”

7 tn Or “screaming.”
