Acts 25:13, Acts 25:23; Acts 26:30 (c) This woman is surely a type of some pet sin which is nourished and protected in the life in order to keep a person from accepting JESUS CHRIST as his Lord and Saviour. Her name means "I give victory." It occurs just these three times with no explanation. She was the blood sister of her husband, Agrippa. They had the same father and mother. Wherever Agrippa went, she went. When he came to hear Paul preach, she was there, and she went out with him to see that he did not choose CHRIST, but rather remain with her. She is a type of any besetting sin in the life which demands the love of the heart, and time, and affection which should be given to CHRIST. Many individuals have a "Bernice" in their lives which keeps them from trusting the Saviour.
