PAULS ARRIVAL IN ROME:
“And when we came to Rome,
the centurion delivered the pri
soners to the captain of the guard:
but Paul was suffered to dwell
by himself with a soldier that
kept him”. The word “we” used

iicates that Luke, the companion
af Paul, who used the word “we”,
came to Rome with Paul.
Paul was attached to a soldier,
tf the regular custom was follow
ed, he was attached with a light
chain which permitted him many
movements of the arms and hands.
Think of the privilege of this
soldier in being chained to the
PAUL’S WORK AS A PRIS
ONER: “And when they had ap
pointed him a day, there came
many to him into his lodging; to
whom he expounded and testi
fied the kingdom of God, persuad
ing them concerning Jesus, both
out of the law of Moses, and out
of the prophets, from morning
till evening”. Here the pronoun
“they” refers to the Jews (Acts
28:17). Palil had sent for them to
come to him because he wished
to present the gospel to the Jews
first, and then to the Gentiles. He
speaks of persuading them. This
was the same type of argument
as is reported in Acts 13:30-39.
“And some believed the things
which were spoken, and some be
lieved not. And when they agreed
not among themselves, they de
parted, after that Paul had spoken
one word, Well spake the Holy
Ghost by Esaias the prophet unto
our fathers, Saying, Go unto this
people, and say, Hearing ye shall
hear, and shall not understand;
an dseeing ye shall see, and not
h fi-Q 10 _
same as that in Mark 4; 11, 12,
and explains why Jesus used par
ables as a means of teaching.
“For the heart of this people
is waxed gross, and their ears are
dull of hearing, and their eyes
have they closed; lest they should
see with their eyes, and hear with
their ears, and understand with
their heart, and should be con
verted, and I should heal them.”
THE CONTENT OF PAUL’S
PREACHING: “Be it known there
fore unto you, that the salvation
of God is sent unto the Gentiles,
and that they will hear it.” These
are the last Luke-recorded words
of Paul. It is fitting that they
should proclaim again one of the
dominant purposes of his whole
ministry, that the gospel of God,
who loved the whole world,
should be carried to the whole
world, and ndt be confined to the
Jews. “And when he had said
these words, the Jews departed,
and had great reasoning among
themselves. And Paul dwelt two
whole years in his own hired
house, and received ail that came
in unto him, Preaching the king
dom of God, and teaching those
things which concern the Lord
Jesus Christ, with all confidence,
no man forbidding him”. There is
no historic word on-how Paul’s
life ended. <But from what we
learn from his letters to Timothy
and Titus, and from early his
torians, it appears that Paul was
released after two year. He spent
four years traveling and preach
ing (when he is believed to have
reached Spain), and died in Rome
during the persecutions of Nero,
about A. D. 67 or 68.
PRACTICAL POINTS ON THE
LESSON: The calling of the
church to evangelize is to con
tinue until Christ returns the
second time to receive the church
We anticipate smooth sailing
in the work of evangelizing, but
rough seas and storms encounter
our labors. However, through
them all we will reach our de
sired heaven. Prosperity ■from
God’s standpoint in the present
life for a saint does not mean
luxury, ease or wealth, but a
success in the accomplishment of
God’s will. WE can outwit all
our enemies when we accept all
things coming to us as being al
lowed by the Lord for our good.
The apostle Paul would never
claim to be a prisoner of the Jews,
Gentiles or Caesar, but that he
was the prisoner of Christ, which
enabled him to live on top and
not under circumstances.
