Acts 27: Paul Travels to Rome
Paul is taken by ship to the island of Crete. The decision is made to sail on, instead of wintering at the city of Fair Havens on the island of Crete. A good start is made from Crete, but the ship quickly encounters great difficulty in a storm. Paul reveals to the crew that they will not perish, because an angel appeared to him and told him it was God’s intention that he appear before Caesar. On the fourteenth night of the storm, Paul ministers to the passengers and crew. The ship runs aground and all are safe, this was in fulfillment of God’s promise through Paul. The centurion, wanting to save Paul, prevents the soldiers from killing the prisoners to stop them escaping.
