Acts 25:1-27 - Corps Notes - January 11, 1977

Well, tonight people, chapter 25 of Acts. We closed with Porcius Festus in Acts 24:27 and
chapter 25 opens with Festus.
Acts 25:1
“he ascended from Caesarea to Jerusalem” - you know, he went up; to go from Jerusalem to
Caesarea, is to go down.
Acts 25:2
“the high priest” - that is not right. It’s the chief priest.
Remember I explained to you that every person who was head of a course was a chief priest.
That’s what we’re talking about here. There were 24 courses of priests. I’d like to say this too.
I’ve often wondered and I think perhaps I’m right on this, that of the 24 courses each course
had a chief priest but there was one chief over the top of the chiefs. And I believe that was what
happened here.
“the chief of the Jews” - one of the top leaders
“besought him” - begged him; sort of put the pressure on him

 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).

Dr. Wierwille researched God's Word, taught, wrote, and traveled worldwide, holding forth the accuracy of God's "wonderful, matchless" Word.
