Tertullus was the Roman prosecutor against Paul. We find Annas, the high priest and the elders ready to press their charges against him with their attorney, Mr. Tertullus, all primed for the attack, and an eager mob of Jews on hand to echo his charges to the Roman governor Felix. Tertullus is called the "orator" who informed the governor against Paul and accused him.

The speech of Tertullus is a good example of plausible and dishonest pleading. Tertullus begins his speech with a passage of almost nauseating flattery, every word of which he knew and Felix knew was quite untrue. "Seeing that by you we enjoy great quietness and that very worthy deeds are done unto this nation by your providence." He went on to state things which were equally untrue. He called Paul a mover of sedition who has profaned the temple. Paul's answer was simple. "After the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my Fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets. And have hope toward God which they themselves also allow that there shall be a resurrection of the dead both of the just and unjust...Touching the resurrection of the dead I am called in question by you this day." Tertullus could not prove his case but Paul was imprisoned anyway.
