A speaker rambled on about Paul, not really bringing solid charges against him, and then Luke noted,
“And the Jews also assented, maintaining that these things were so” (Acts 24:9).
As the Roman governor listened to this, he might have been tempted to believe the Jews since they all agreed with the speaker, and there were many of them.
However, simply because everyone agrees to error does not make error truth. Truth is truth, even if no one believes it.
What do you conclude about events and people, especially when you hear many giving their support to the current opinion?
