Pristine Grace

Acts 24:1-14, (NASB)
1  After five days the high priest Ananias came down with some elders, with an attorney named Tertullus, and they brought charges to the governor against Paul.
2  After Paul had been summoned, Tertullus began to accuse him, saying to the governor "Since we have through you attained much peace, and since by your providence reforms are being carried out for this nation,
3  we acknowledge this in every way and everywhere, most excellent Felix, with all thankfulness.
4  "But, that I may not weary you any further, I beg you to grant us, by your kindness, a brief hearing.
5  "For we have found this man a real pest and a fellow who stirs up dissension among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes.
6  "And he even tried to desecrate the temple; and then we arrested him. [We wanted to judge him according to our own Law.
7  "But Lysias the commander came along, and with much violence took him out of our hands,
8  ordering his accusers to come before you.]By examining him yourself concerning all these matters you will be able to ascertain the things of which we accuse him."
9  The Jews also joined in the attack, asserting that these things were so.
10  When the governor had nodded for him to speak, Paul responded: "Knowing that for many years you have been a judge to this nation, I cheerfully make my defense,
11  since you can take note of the fact that no more than twelve days ago I went up to Jerusalem to worship.
12  "Neither in the temple, nor in the synagogues, nor in the city itself did they find me carrying on a discussion with anyone or causing a riot.
13  "Nor can they prove to you the charges of which they now accuse me.
14  "But this I admit to you, that according to the Way which they call a sect I do serve the God of our fathers, believing everything that is in accordance with the Law and that is written in the Prophets;
