    Then to protect Paul from the Jews, the captain sent him to Caesarea for an appearance before Felix, the Roman governor. Felix held a hearing, but he took no action except to leave Paul in prison. Felix was governor for two additional years before Festus became the governor. Festus was aware of Paul’s innocence, but to prevent losing favor with the Jews, he ordered Paul back to Jerusalem for trial.

Faith without works is worthless. “What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? Can faith save him?
