King Agrippa permitted Paul "to speak for yourself." Agrippa was, after all, "an expert in all customs and questions among Jews."

Given such free rein, Paul constructed a compelling case: beginning from his youth as he grew into a strict Pharisee. His trial, he maintained, was "for the hope of the promise made by God to our fathers." Even though he formerly did everything he could to exterminate the name of Jesus, he dramatically altered his course at the cross-roads of his life. He saw Jesus. He changed directions.

The rest of his life—with God's help up to that point—was nothing less or other than what Moses and the prophets promised:Messiah was to be first one raised to begin His message of light.

These "words of sober truth" were like a laser trying to penetrate the king's heart. It didn't work But, Paul tried. Rather than appealing for his own life, he actually appealed for the life of the king and all who were with him! That is the compelling love of Paul (see 2 Cor. 5:14).

Tune in while we examine this message and pull out key details. Paul, you see, was a preterist!
