Antonius Felix was the Roman procurator of Judaea from A.D. 53 to 60. He had a reputation for ruling harshly, but treated Paul with the respect he deserved as a Roman citizen.

Paul was arrested and charged with disturbing the Jewish faith in a hearing before Felix at Caesarea in A.D. 60.[1] Felix held two hearings but declined to rule against Paul, instead keeping Paul in custody so that the successor to Felix, Porcius Festus (A.D. 60-62), could resolve the matter.
