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. 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.
