Acts 24
22 But when Felix heard these things, having more accurate knowledge of the Way, he adjourned the proceedings and said, “When Lysias the commander comes down, I will make a decision on your case.” 23 So he commanded the centurion to keep Paul and to let him have liberty, and told him not to forbid any of his friends to provide for or visit him.

So Felix now has more knowledge about the Way, who they are and what they believe. So he pauses the proceedings. He is going to wait for Lysias before he judges. Maybe to keep the peace?

I find it interesting that Felix, who is said to be a TERRIBLE person who has crucified many people, gives Paul freedom and privilege.
This MUST be favor from God. For the annoyance of this trial, Felix could have easily put Paul on lock down.
