August 29, 2021 This week, we hear of another tense moment from the book of Acts. Let’s paint the scene: a courtroom in Caesarea. We see the governor Felix sitting high up on the judge’s bench. He is the Roman governor that we know little to nothing about at the time. My contemporary eyes see him donning a black judicial robe. Then we have the prosecutor, a man named Tertullus, a roman advocate employed by the Jewish authorities. And this guy…he’s not good news, y’all. It’s all in his name, which is derived from a word meaning “liar” or “imposter.”
