New Testament Bible Lesson Forty-Two: Paul’s Journey to Rome

Paul was sent to Rome with some other prisoners. After a slow voyage to the fair havens Paul advised them to spend the winter there, but the captain preferred to go on to Phenice. They were caught in a violent storm for fourteen days before it suffered shipwreck and the passengers were able to get to the shore of Melita, as God had promised Paul.

After three months they were able to leave the island on their way to Rome. While in Rome, Paul was allowed to live in a private house, with a soldier, and could receive guests and preach the gospel to them. He also wrote many of the Epistles as letters to churches or disciples.

The Bible does not tell us clearly what happened to Paul in Rome, but history suggests that he was set free and made another journey, before he was killed by the Romans.
