    1 Paul, after his shipwreck, is kindly entertained of the barbarians. 5 The viper on his hand hurts him not. 8 He heals many diseases in the island. 11 They depart towards Rome. 17 He declares to the Jews the cause of his coming. 24 After his preaching some were persuaded, and some believed not. 30 Yet he preaches there two years.

Rome, the capital of Italy, and once of the whole world, is situated on the banks of the Tiber, about sixteen miles from the sea; 410 miles S.S.E. of Vienna, 600 S.E. of Paris, 730 E. by N. of Madrid, 760 W. of Constantinople, and 780 S.E. of London. * Ac 2:10; 18:2; 19:21; 23:11 Ro 1:7-15; 15:22-29 Re 17:9,18 - the centurion. * Ac 27:3,31,43 - captain. * Ge 37:36 2Ki 25:8 Jer 40:2 - but. * :30,31; 24:23; 27:3 Ge 39:21-23 VERSE 17 - though. * Ac 23:1 *etc: * Ac 24:10-16; 25:8,10 Ge 40:15 - was. * Ac 21:33 *etc: * Ac 23:33 VERSE 18 * Ac 22:24,25,30; 24:10,22; 25:7,8; 26:31 VERSE 19 - I was. * Ac 25:10-12,21,25; 26:32 - not. * Ro 12:19-21 1Pe 2:22,23 VERSE 20 - this cause. * :17; 10:29,33 - for the. * Ac 23:6; 24:15 - See on * Ac 26:6,7 - this chain. That is, the chain with which he was bound to the 'soldier that kept him;' (ver. 16;) a mode of custody which Dr. Lardner has shown was in use among the Romans. It is in exact conformity, therefore, with the truth of Paul's situation at this time, that he declares himself to be 'an ambassador in a chain,' [en <1722> halusis <254>,] (Ep. 20 6:20;) and the exactness is the more remarkable, as [halusis <254>,] a chain is no where used in the singular number to express any other kind of custody. * Ac 26:29 Eph 3:1; 4:1; 6:20 Php 1:13 Col 4:18 2Ti 1:10; 2:9 * Phm 10:13 VERSE 21 - We. * Ex 11:7 Isa 41:11; 50:8; 54:17 VERSE 22 - for. * Ac 16:20,21; 17:6,7; 24:5,6,14 Lu 2:34 1Pe 2:12; 3:16; 4:14-16 - sect. * Ac 5:17; 15:5; 26:5 1Co 11:19 *marg: VERSE 23 - there came. * Phm 2 1:2 - he expounded. * Ac 17:2,3; 18:4,28; 19:8; 26:22,23 - both.

Paul, after his release, is supposed to have visited Judaea, in the way to which he left Titus at Crete, (Tit. 5 1:5,) and then returned through Syria, Cilicia, Asia Minor, and Greece, to Rome; where, according to primitive tradition, he was beheaded by order of Nero, A.D. 66, at Aquae Saiviae, three miles from Rome, and interred in the Via Ostensis, two miles from the city, where Constantine erected a church. - dwelt. * :16 VERSE 31 - Cir.

The Acts of the Apostles is a most valuable portion of Divine revelation; and, independently of its universal reception in the Christian church, as an authentic and inspired production, it bears the most satisfactory internal evidence of its authenticity and truth. Luke's long attendance upon Paul, and his having been an eyewitness of many of the facts which he has recorded, independently of his Divine inspiration, render him a most suitable and credible historian; and his medical knowledge, for he is allowed to have been a physician, enabled him both to form a proper judgment of the miraculous cures which were performed by Paul, and to give an authentic and circumstantial detail of them. The plainness and simplicity of the narrative are also strong circumstances in its favor. The history of the Acts is one of the most important parts of the Sacred History, for without it neither the Gospels nor Epistles could have been so clearly understood; but by the aid of it the whole scheme of the Christian revelation is set before us in a clear and easy view.
