But after two years Porcius Festus came into Felix’ room: and Felix, willing to shew the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound.
 Now when Festus was come into the province, after three days he ascended from Caesarea to Jerusalem.
 Then the high priest and the chief of the Jews informed him against Paul, and besought him,
 And desired favour against him, that he would send for him to Jerusalem, laying wait in the way to kill him.
 But Festus answered, that Paul should be kept at Caesarea, and that he himself would depart shortly thither.
 Let them therefore, said he, which among you are able, go down with me, and accuse this man, if there be any wickedness in him.
 And when he had tarried among them more than ten days, he went down unto Caesarea; and the next day sitting on the judgment seat commanded Paul to be brought.
 And when he was come, the Jews which came down from Jerusalem stood round about, and laid many and grievous complaints against Paul, which they could not prove.
 While he answered for himself, Neither against the law of the Jews, neither against the temple, nor yet against Caesar, have I offended any thing at all.
 But Festus, willing to do the Jews a pleasure, answered Paul, and said, Wilt thou go up to Jerusalem, and there be judged of these things before me?
 Then said Paul, I stand at Caesar’s judgment seat, where I ought to be judged: to the Jews have I done no wrong, as thou very well knowest.
 For if I be an offender, or have committed any thing worthy of death, I refuse not to die: but if there be none of these things whereof these accuse me, no man may deliver me unto them. I appeal unto Caesar.
 Then Festus, when he had conferred with the council, answered, Hast thou appealed unto Caesar? unto Caesar shalt thou go.
3 John 1:1-14
 The elder unto the wellbeloved Gaius, whom I love in the truth.
 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
 For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth.
 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
 Beloved, thou doest faithfully whatsoever thou doest to the brethren, and to strangers;
 Which have borne witness of thy charity before the church: whom if thou bring forward on their journey after a godly sort, thou shalt do well:
 Because that for his name’s sake they went forth, taking nothing of the Gentiles.
 We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be fellowhelpers to the truth.
 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.
 Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth them out of the church.
 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.
 Demetrius hath good report of all men, and of the truth itself: yea, and we also bear record; and ye know that our record is true.
 I had many things to write, but I will not with ink and pen write unto thee:
 But I trust I shall shortly see thee, and we shall speak face to face. Peace be to thee. Our friends salute thee. Greet the friends by name.
 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.
 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.
 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.
 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.
 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
 This he said, signifying what death he should die.
 The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?
 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.
 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,
 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
 These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.
 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
