Arrived at Rome, Paul calls the Jews to come and hear his defense and many of them come to his home. Even though they have heard no complaints about Paul, they have heard about the ‘sect’ to which he belongs and they want to hear more about it.

Paul reasons solemnly with them from morning until evening, preaching the Gospel and trying to persuade them of its truth.

From this passage, we see Paul’s earnest plea for the Jews’ salvation and also their mixed response, in that some believe and others don’t.

Once again, we review God’s plan of salvation and His sovereignty in it but we underscore our responsibility to make Christ known to all mankind.
