Imprisoned for two years, Paul was finally on his way to Rome, knowing he faced almost certain death, but not before taking the Gospel to the heart of the worlds dominant empire. He pled his case before Romes king in Israel, seizing the moment to make sure the Gospel was preached.
The Jews wanted Paul dead. But Paul appealed to Caesar and ended up in a Caesarea prison. After years passed, a new governor appealed to Romes King in Palestine, Herod Agrippa. In this message we see how the Gospel reaches an even broader audience.
Felix was a Roman governor in Caesarea, Romes headquarters in what is now Israel. Facing Paul, Felix and his wife Drusilla found themselves confronted with the Gospel, which brought their own sins to light. The Gospel was working its power in the ancient world.
Paul the Apostle had appealed to Caesar in a conflict with Jewish authorities. This meant facing the Roman governor in ancient Caesarea. As waves lapped on the nearby shore, Governor Felix came face to face with a man the likes of whom hed never seen.
In Jerusalem, some new believers insisted that converts to the Christian faith continue to observe Jewish laws. The conflict was sharp, and Paul had to settle an argument that put the outreach of the Gospel at risk.
The Apostle Paul rejected the counsel of his peers and went back to Jerusalem after completing two missionary journeys. His determination to settle a church split drove him into hardship, and eventually, execution in Rome.
Wherever the Gospel has gone, light has burst forth into the culture. But sometimes that light is later extinguished. In this message we look at the seven churches of Revelation in Turkey. All of them are long gone. What happened?
