Paul in Rome

68 ( 29 | 39 )

In Acts 28 finally, through many dangers Paul arrives in that ancient City.

In Acts 28 we read: Acts 28:16 And when we came to Rome, the centurion delivered the prisoners to the captain of the guard: but Paul was suffered to dwell by himself with a soldier that kept him.

From Acts 28 we understand that Paul spent two years in a hired house under Roman Guard.

In Rome Paul took the opportunity to witness to both Jews and Gentiles.

Paul always had a concern for his people the Jews to hear the Gospel and often Paul would witness to the Jews first when he came to various cities.
Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Paul's policy was to share with the Jew first in numbers of cities:
Paul had been a zealous Jew before his conversion and the Jews were a people group that he could also easily identify with to bring the Gospel truths to them.

So in Acts 28 just days after Paul gets to Rome, Paul calls the Jewish leaders to meet with him.

Paul knew that the Jews were religious, but yet not right with God and they needed the Gospel.

Rom 10:1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. 2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.

Have you got a people group that you can understand exactly how they think and then be a witness to them?
