Bible study on Acts of the Apostles – Chapter 28

Dear brothers and sisters,

In the Bible study on the 28th chapter of the Acts of the Apostles I will discuss:

  • Paul ashore on Malta
  • Paul’s arrival at Rome
  • Paul preaches at Rome under guard

Paul ashore on Malta

God was protecting Paul through this whole journey. Now arrived on the shores of Malta, God made sure that the islanders showed unusual kindness. Paul gathered brushwood for a fire and from that wood came a viper that god hold of his hand. The inlanders thought that this meant that Paul was a murderer and justice was coming after him. But as always God protected him and Paul put them to shame by just shaking the snake off.

On the island he was welcomed into the estate of Publius, the chief official of the island. His father was sick in bed. And again God allowed Paul through prayer to heal someone. Even in times that people are trying to get us down, God can and will still use us to do His work. Never think that your situation means that you are not expected to be there to your work for God!

Paul’s arrival at Rome

After some months the travel to Rome was complete and God allowed Paul to live there in freedom in the meanwhile. He was sent their to be put to trial, but still God ensured that he was treated properly! God is good!

Paul preaches at Rome under guard

He came to the Jews in Rome and explained the whole reason for him being here. See how the Jews in Jerusalem did not even do any trouble to reach the Jews in Rome. And yet they considered Paul to be such a treat. These Jews openly listened and also were divided, but allowed him to live in peace in al those years and to spread the gospel.

That we might not fully agree on everything, does not mean that we should try and kill each other. Love each other, we are all children from God!

Thank you for growing with me through the Bible study on Acts! Amen!
