Paul now makes his defence of himself by defending his loyality to the Gospel and the Old Testament prophets. In defending his loyalty he recounts his "Resurrection focus," "Conversion focus," and "Calling Focus."
You will notice that his defence is all about what God has done in Christ for those who believe in him. This of course is rejected by Festus because of his secular Roman mindset that cannot believe in a resurrection and by King Harod Agrippa II because of the pragmatic political implications that would come from receiving Christ as Lord. Paul's desire is for everyone that hears the Gospel to repent of their sins and believe.
This passage show that Christians should defend themselves by the Gospel. That means that Chrisitans must be knnown for their aherance to the gospel of Jesus Christ rather than a host of other life's political issues. Would you want to defend yourself for temporary causes or eternal causes. Paul is a great example of one who priortized being know for the eternal cause: The proclamation of the Gospel.
