Paul stands before King Agrippa and delivers a passionate defense of his faith and ministry. Paul shares about his background as a devout Pharisee and his zealous persecution of Christians before his encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus. Paul describes how Jesus appeared to him, commissioning him to be a witness and minister to both Jews and Gentiles, bringing them to repentance and faith in God.
Paul’s passionate defense moves Agrippa, who acknowledges that Paul’s arguments are persuasive but suggests that he is close to persuading him to become a Christian. Paul responds by expressing his desire that not only Agrippa but also all who hear him would become followers of Jesus, except for his imprisonment.
