Pristine Grace

Acts 24:1-14, (KJV)
1  And after five days Ananias the high priest descended with the elders, and with a certain orator named Tertullus, who informed the governor against Paul.
2  And when he was called forth, Tertullus began to accuse him, saying, Seeing that by thee we enjoy great quietness, and that very worthy deeds are done unto this nation by thy providence,
3  We accept it always, and in all places, most noble Felix, with all thankfulness.
4  Notwithstanding, that I be not further tedious unto thee, I pray thee that thou wouldest hear us of thy clemency a few words.
5  For we have found this man a pestilent fellow, and a mover of sedition among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes:
6  Who also hath gone about to profane the temple: whom we took, and would have judged according to our law.
7  But the chief captain Lysias came upon us, and with great violence took him away out of our hands,
8  Commanding his accusers to come unto thee: by examining of whom thyself mayest take knowledge of all these things, whereof we accuse him.
9  And the Jews also assented, saying that these things were so.
10  Then Paul, after that the governor had beckoned unto him to speak, answered, Forasmuch as I know that thou hast been of many years a judge unto this nation, I do the more cheerfully answer for myself:
11  Because that thou mayest understand, that there are yet but twelve days since I went up to Jerusalem for to worship.
12  And they neither found me in the temple disputing with any man, neither raising up the people, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city:
13  Neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me.
14  But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:
