Day 25 - 28 Day Challenge

A dead man named Jesus

Festus in explaining the situation Paul to his King says in v19:

but their accusations turned out to be nothing more than arguments about their religion and a dead man named Jesus, who the prisoner claimed was alive.

He couldn't quite understand what all the commotion was about. To Felix it was just an insignificant dead man with a very common name. To Paul it was about his master, his model, his saviour who was very much alive.

For a dead man all this argument would have been worthless, Paul's sacrifices wasteful. The thing that makes all the difference in Paul's life and our, the thing that splits opinion throughout history is that Jesus is not just some dead man but that he is very much alive.
