But since it involves questions about words and names and your own law--settle the matter yourselves. I will not be a judge of such things."
I found that the accusation had to do with questions about their law, but there was no charge against him that deserved death or imprisonment.
When his accusers got up to speak, they did not charge him with any of the crimes I had expected.
and especially so because you are well acquainted with all the Jewish customs and controversies. Therefore, I beg you to listen to me patiently.
