Acts 26:32

Context
26:32 Agrippa 1  said to Festus, 2  “This man could have been released 3  if he had not appealed to Caesar.” 4 

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

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

3 tn Or “set free.”

4 tn Or “to the emperor” (“Caesar” is a title for the Roman emperor).

sn If he had not appealed to Caesar. Ultimately Agrippa and Festus blamed what Paul himself had done in appealing to Caesar for his own continued custody. In terms of Luke’s narrative, this still appears unjust and a denial of responsibility.
