24:1 过了五天,大祭司亚拿尼亚,同几个长老,和一个辩士帖土罗,下来,向巡抚控告保罗。

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.

24:2 保罗被提了来,帖土罗就告他说,

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,

24:3 腓利斯大人,我们因你得以大享太平,并且这一国的弊病,因着你的先见,得以更正了。我们随时随地,满心感谢不尽。

We accept it always, and in all places, most noble Felix, with all thankfulness.

24:4 惟恐多说,你嫌烦絮,只求你宽容听我们说几句话。

Notwithstanding, that I be not further tedious unto thee, I pray thee that thou wouldest hear us of thy clemency a few words.

24:5 我们看这个人,如同瘟疫一般,是鼓动普天下众犹太人生乱的,又是拿撒勒教党里的一个头目。

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:

24:6 连圣殿他也想要污秽。我们把他捉住了。(有古卷在此有要按我们的律法审问。

Who also hath gone about to profane the temple: whom we took, and would have judged according to our law.

24:7 不料千夫长吕西亚前来甚是强横从我们手中把他夺去,吩咐告他的人到你这里来)。

But the chief captain Lysias came upon us, and with great violence took him away out of our hands,

24:8 你自己究问他,就可以知道我们告他的一切事了。

Commanding his accusers to come unto thee: by examining of whom thyself mayest take knowledge of all these things, whereof we accuse him.

24:9 众犹太人也随着告他说,事情诚然是这样。

And the Jews also assented, saying that these things were so.

24:10 巡抚点头叫保罗说话,他就说,我知道你在这国里断事多年,所以我乐意为自己分诉。

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:

24:11 你查问就可以知道,从我上耶路撒冷礼拜,到今日,不过有十二天。

Because that thou mayest understand, that there are yet but twelve days since I went up to Jerusalem for to worship.

24:12 他们并没有看见我在殿里,或是在会堂里,或是在城里,和人辩论,耸动众人。

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:

24:13 他们现在所告我的事,并不能对你证实了。

Neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me.

24:14 但有一件事,我向你承认,就是他们所称为异端的道,我正按着那道事奉我祖宗的神,又信合乎律法的,和先知书上一切所记载的。

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:

24:15 并且靠着神,盼望死人,无论善恶,都要复活,就是他们自己也有这个盼望。

And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.

24:16 我因此自己勉励,对神,对人,常存无亏的良心。

And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men.

24:17 过了几年,我带着周济本国的捐项和供献的物上去。

Now after many years I came to bring alms to my nation, and offerings.

24:18 正献的时候,他们看见我在殿里已经洁净了,并没有聚众,也没有吵囔。惟有几个从亚细亚来的犹太人。

Whereupon certain Jews from Asia found me purified in the temple, neither with multitude, nor with tumult.

24:19 他们若有告我的事,就应当到你面前来告我。

Who ought to have been here before thee, and object, if they had ought against me.

24:20 既或不然,这些人,若看出我站在公会前,有妄为的地方,他们自己也可以说明。

Or else let these same here say, if they have found any evil doing in me, while I stood before the council,

24:21 纵然有,也不过一句话,就是我站在他们中间大声说,我今日在你们面前受审,是为死人复活的道理

Except it be for this one voice, that I cried standing among them, Touching the resurrection of the dead I am called in question by you this day.

24:22 腓力斯本是详细晓得这道,就支吾他们说,且等千夫长吕西亚下来,我要审断你们的事。

And when Felix heard these things, having more perfect knowledge of that way, he deferred them, and said, When Lysias the chief captain shall come down, I will know the uttermost of your matter.

24:23 于是吩咐百夫长看守保罗并且宽待他,也不拦阻他的亲友来供给他。

And he commanded a centurion to keep Paul, and to let him have liberty, and that he should forbid none of his acquaintance to minister or come unto him.

24:24 过了几天,腓力斯和他夫人犹太的女子土西拉,一同来到,就叫了保罗来,听他讲论信基督耶稣的道。

And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ.

24:25 保罗讲论公义,节制,和将来的审判,腓力斯甚觉恐惧,说,你暂且去吧,等我得便再叫你来。

And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.

24:26 腓力斯又指望保罗送他银钱,所以屡次叫他来,和他谈论。

He hoped also that money should have been given him of Paul, that he might loose him: wherefore he sent for him the oftener, and communed with him.

24:27 过了两年,波求非斯都接了腓力斯的任,腓力斯要讨犹太人的喜欢,就留保罗在监里。

But after two years Porcius Festus came into Felix’ room: and Felix, willing to shew the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound.

使徒行传24参考

那些人仍不死心?又出动了,他们在这里做甚么?说甚么?
24:1 原告人──大祭司亚拿尼亚、律师帖土罗,以及几位长老来到了。他们走了九十六公里路来到凯撒利亚,对保罗作出虚假的指控。尽管他们杀害保罗的阴谋失败了(23:12-15),但他们仍然坚持要将他置于死地。

帖土罗也真厉害,你知道他如何陈述案情吗?
24:2-21 帖土罗是一个擅长辩论的人,由宗教领袖特别请来在罗马巡抚面前陈述案件。他控告保罗三条罪状:(1)是一个捣乱者,煽动各处的犹太人引起暴乱;(2)是未被承认的宗教派别的首脑,这是违反罗马法律的;(3)亵渎圣殿。这些宗教领袖希望这些指控能够说服腓力斯处决保罗。

保罗答辩,更传福音,一丝机会也把握;我们嘛……
24:10-21 帖土罗及宗教领袖攻击保罗的证据似乎颇有力,保罗却逐一驳倒了他们的指控。保罗在答辩时,也能够将福音带出来。控告保罗的人不能提出明确的证据来支持他们的指控。例如,保罗被指在亚西亚的犹太人中间引起暴乱(24:18-19),但却没有当地的犹太人出席证明这件事情。这是显明保罗把握任何机会来见证基督的另一个列证(参24:14, 24)。

腓力斯在支吾以对,奇怪了……
24:22 腓力斯做了六年巡抚,应该知道有关基督徒的事。基督徒平静的生活方式叫罗马人知道基督徒不会到处去引起骚乱。

人心深处,敏感非常,不可碰?不可触?你也如那长官一样,怕人说到自己内心吗?
24:25 保罗的讲论触及腓力斯的内心,令他觉得恐惧。腓力斯像希律安提帕一样(参可6:17-18),娶了别人的妻子。保罗所讲的内容一直都很吸引他;不过,当保罗提到“公义、节制和将来的审判”时,他便不再有兴趣了。只要你所讲的福音内容不会太剌激他人的内心,有许多人会很乐意和你谈论。可是,当你传讲的福音一接触到他们心灵深处时,有些人便会抗拒或走开。然而,这正是福音的内涵──神的能力会改变生命。假如福音没有从原则和教义转化成为改变生命的动力,那么福音便没有功效了。

腓力斯留保罗在监,原来是别有用心的……
24:27 由于犹太人占大多数,罗马的政治领袖为了维持和平会顺从犹太人的意见。保罗似乎无论走到哪里,都在犹太人中间引起麻烦,腓力斯把保罗留在监里,便可以在离职前仍然与犹太人保持良好关系。
