July 6: Read through the Holy Bible in a year.

Acts 25. Paul stood trial before Festus, and Festus found that as the charges were all religious he suggested sending Paul to Jerusalem, but Paul Appealed to Caesar. To finalize the charges Paul then went before King Agrippa and client Queen Bernice (Festus could find nothing chargeable according to Roman Law on his own).
