“descended” - came down
orator” – advocate; like a barrister; a lawyer. I believe, to the best of my recollection, he must
have been Roman. It sort of surprises me that the top Jewish leadership of the Sanhedrin, would
get an unbeliever to front for them. But, you know, if you want to pull the strings on anybody
then it doesn’t make any difference who you put in bed. Hire the mafia or anybody.
“when he was called forth” – i.e. Paul
“saying” - this is what he said to Felix
“great quietness” - he’s talking about the kind of quietness that you enjoy under a dictatorship,
because Felix had been chopping off heads, shooting people, hanging them, murdering them,
getting rid of them. And anybody that said anything against the government got shot, now.
And, of course, you shoot a few extra hundred to keep the rest of them; so we don’t have
anything but quietness. It is so quiet that everybody walks around with a long face, because if
you smile they may execute you cause they think you’re hiding something or you‘re tricky.
You just watch situations in countries that are enslaved. People do not smile.
“very worthy deeds are done unto this nation by the providence” - boy, it’s typical savvying-up.
Total lies, but, you know, it’s nice politics.

Victor Paul Wierwille was a Bible scholar and teacher for over four decades.
By means of Dr. Wierwille's dynamic teaching of the accuracy and integrity of God's Word, foundational class and advanced class graduates of Power for Abundant Living have learned that the one great requirement for every student of the Bible is to rightly divide the Word of Truth. Thus, his presentation of the Word of God was designed for students who desire the in-depth-accuracy of God’s Word.
In his many years of research, Dr. Wierwille studied with such men as Karl Barth, E. Stanley Jones, Glenn Clark, Bishop K.C. Pillai, and George M. Lamsa. His formal training included Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Theology degrees from Mission House (Lakeland) College and Seminary. He studied at the University of Chicago and at Princeton Theological Seminary from which he received a Master of Theology degree in Practical Theology. Later he completed his work for the Doctor of Theology degree.
Dr. Wierwille taught the first class on Power for Abundant Living in 1953.
Books by Dr. Wierwille include: Are the Dead Alive Now? published in 1971; Receiving the Holy Spirit Today published in 1972; five volumes of Studies in Abundant Living— The Bible Tells Me So (1971), The New, Dynamic Church (1971), The Word's Way (1971), God's Magnified Word (1977), Order My Steps in Thy Word (1985); Jesus Christ Is Not God (1975); Jesus Christ Our Passover (1980); and Jesus Christ Our Promised Seed (1982).
