King Agrippa II believes in the prophets (Acts 26:27)

“King Agrippa!

Do you believe in the prophets?

I know that you believe.”

πιστεύεις, βασιλεῦ Ἀγρίππα, τοῖς προφήταις; οἶδα ὅτι πιστεύεις.

The author of Acts indicated that Paul spoke to King Agrippa II directly. Paul asked him if he believed (πιστεύεις) in the prophets (τοῖς προφήταις).  Then Paul said that he knew (οἶδα) that King Agrippa II (βασιλεῦ Ἀγρίππα) believed (ὅτι πιστεύεις) in the prophets.  Paul once again paid close attention to King Agrippa II.  He asked him if he believed in the prophets.  Then he answered for him that the king did believe in the prophets.  Paul seemed to imply that anyone who believed in the prophets should believe in Jesus.  Do you believe in the Israelite prophets and Jesus?
