Acts 24:1 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
And after five days - This time was occupied, doubtless, in their receiving the command to go to Caesarea, and in making the necessary arrangements. This was the twelfth day after Paul's arrival at Jerusalem. See Acts 24:11.
Ananias, the high priest - See the notes on Acts 23:2.
Descended - Came down from Jerusalem. This was the usual language when a departure from Jerusalem was spoken of. See the notes on Acts 15:1.

Who informed the governor against Paul - Who acted as the accuser, or who managed their cause before the governor.

After Paul had been summoned, Tertullus began to accuse him, saying to the governor, "Since we have through you attained much peace, and since by your providence reforms are being carried out for this nation,
since you can take note of the fact that no more than twelve days ago I went up to Jerusalem to worship.
And the chief priests and the leading men of the Jews brought charges against Paul, and they were urging him,
