Giving Testimony of the Hope of the Promise - Acts 26

Paul gives his "defense" before Agrippa. It is a hearing called by Festus in order for King Agrippa to hear Paul's case. It is not a formal trial.

In any case, Paul defends himself against baseless charges but his focus is on how Jesus has transformed him and how He is the one who he is following and obeying. Paul presents the Gospel to those hearing, especially Festus and King Agrippa.

This is Paul's longest speech in the book of Acts.

All of us believers are called by God to give testimony of what Christ has done for us. We are called to share and explain the Gospel to others. This is our mission as well.

From Acts 26 we are reminded that those who are not believers are:

1. Spiritually blind and in darkness (2 Cor. 4:3-6; 1 Pet. 2:9; Col. 1:9)
2. Under the rule of Satan.
3. In need of forgiveness of sin which comes through faith in Christ.
4. Sanctified when they are in Christ and share in the fellowship with other believers.

Here is the audio recording for Acts 26 taught during our Sunday School hour at Village Bible Church.
