The Definition of the word Appeal
A reference of any case from an inferior to a superior court. Moses established in the wilderness a series of judicatories such that appeals could be made from a lower to a higher (Ex. 18:13-26.) "Under the Roman law the most remarkable case of appeal is that of Paul from the tribunal of Festus at Caesarea to that of the "emperor at Rome (Acts 25:11, 12, 21, 25). Paul availed himself" of the privilege of a Roman citizen in this matter.
