Paul Stands Trial Before Governor Felix
“And after five days the high priest Ananias came down with certain elders, and with an orator, one Tertullus; and they informed the governor against Paul. And when he was called, Tertullus began to accuse him, saying, Seeing that by thee we enjoy much peace, and that by the providence evils are corrected for this nation,” Acts 24:1-2 ASV
Illustration of Paul standing before the Governor Antonius Felix. The orator Tertullus is pointing at Paul. Paul has both arms raised and is leaning away from his accusers.
