6 And now I stand here on trial because of my hope in the promise made by God to our fathers,
7 to which our twelve tribes hope to attain, as they earnestly worship night and day. And for this hope I am accused by Jews, O king!
8 Why is it thought incredible by any of you that God raises the dead?
Hope through Tribulation
As we come off last week where Jesus talked about the tribulation that we will face, we see an example of Paul facing tribulation. He’s on trial for having hope in God that should be shared by is kinsmen. But, he’s on trial for possibly his life and he uses it as an opportunity to point people to God and Jesus.
