Paul In Caesarea

  • Paul gets on a ship and starts the journey toward Jerusalem. Bon voyage!
  • The group stops in a bunch of ports and are well-received by various Christians before arriving in Caesarea.
  • Upon arrival, Paul meets with Philip (who was one of the seven that was appointed by the apostles in Chapter 6).
  • At Philip's house, a local prophet named Agabus tells Paul that he will be imprisoned and turned over to the Gentiles.
  • All Paul's friends hear this and beg Paul not to go to Jerusalem.
  • No way, Paul tells them. He's ready to die if that's what God needs him to do to spread the word.
    Well, in that case, go ahead, they tell him
  • When the ritual is almost over (it takes seven days to complete), the non-Jewish-Christians in town see him in the temple and freak out.
  • They grab Paul and tell everyone that he's been teaching "everyone everywhere" that Jewish law stinks. They also (wrongly) assume that he has—horror of horrors—taken a Gentile into the temple. It's a pretty big no-no.
  • The Jewish naysayers are all attacking Paul when a group of soldiers comes along and stops them from beating him up. They also arrest Paul, but hey, it's better than a beating by an angry mob.
  • The soldiers are trying to figure out what Paul did, but the whole crowd is in chaos. The men lead Paul away while the mob is still trying to get at him.
  • Before putting him in prison, Paul asks the soldiers if he can address the people. They tell him to have at it and then (we're guessing) sit back to watch Paul get torn apart.
