Paul languishes in prison, appearing before the governors Felix, then Festus, and then King Agrippa: Acts 24–26

When given only a limited time to explain himself to Festus and Agrippa, both who were familiar with Jewish and Christian ways, Paul told the story of his conversion and then summarised his teaching as this:

Acts 26:22-23 I teach nothing except what the prophets and Moses said would happen–that the Messiah would suffer and be the first to rise from the dead, and in this way announce God’s light to Jews and Gentiles alike.

It caused Festus to accuse him of being crazy, and, after a bit more discussion, it caused Agrippa to advise Paul he couldn’t convert him.
