Romans save Paul’s life for jail
When Paul got back to Jerusalem from his third missionary trip to what are now Turkey and Greece, some Jews started a riot. It was over Paul unorthodox teaching that nonJews are Abraham’s spiritual descendants.
Romans arrested him. Paul’s nephew alerted the Romans that some Jews were waiting to jump the soldiers, take Paul, and kill him. So they put together a large group of soldiers to take him out of town, and to the Roman-looking coastal city of Caesarea.
Caesarea was a port city that King Herod the Great built on the Mediterranean coast about 70 miles (110 km) northwest of Jerusalem. Romans used Caesarea as their capital of the entire region. The march from one town to the other would take three or four days.
