Claudius Lysias, To His Excellency,1 Governor Felix: Greetings.227
This man was seized by the Jews and they were about to kill him,3 but I came with my troops and rescued him,4 for I had learned that he is a Roman citizen.528
I wanted to know why they were accusing him, so I brought him to their Sanhedrin.629
I found that the accusation had to do with questions about their law,7 but there was no charge against him8 that deserved death or imprisonment.
When I was informed9 of a plot10 to be carried out against the man, I sent him to you at once. I also ordered his accusers11 to present to you their case against him.
