Closing Acts \ Week 46 summary posted

Paul finally visited Rome while a captive awaiting his trial before Caesar. The letter to the Ephesians is one of the Prison Letters. It was probably written during his first imprisonment in Rome, which lasted from A.D. 60 to 62.

This week, we wrap up our reading of the Acts of the Apostles beginning with Paul still in prison.   He appears before King Agrippa II and his sister, Bernice, who was always by his side.  One of Agrippa’s other siblings was Drusilla, who was the wife of Festus’ predecessor, Felix).  This Agrippa was educated in the court of the emperor Claudius, and was the son of Herod Agrippa I, who in Acts 12:1-3 had the Apostle James killed and Peter arrested, and who the Lord stuck down dead in Acts 12:21-23.  These events are followed this week by shipwrecks, snakes, and of course, Paul preaching the good news about Jesus Christ. Then we will read the first chapter of Paul’s epistle to the Ephesians, which Paul wrote while in prison in Rome.

Summing Up

Each weekend, I am now posting a small PDF of one week of chapter summaries (on the website’s “Summaries” page), current to the beginning of the previous week.  I have posted the summary for Week 46 (November Week 2) of the schedule I am following.  This short PDF document contains condensed comments about 2 Corinthians 8, 9, and Romans 1, 2, and 3, with hyperlinks to the ESV version of each chapter for listening or reading, and joins the summaries for other weeks already posted there.
