Paul : his travels by Rev. Norman Langenbrunner

Following his “conversion” or call on the road to Damascus (cf.Acts9:1-19), Paul soon gained the reputation of being an Apostle to the Gentiles.
 
Following his “conversion” or call on the road to Damascus (cf.Acts9:1-19), Paul soon gained the reputation of being an Apostle to the Gentiles. He preached in Arabia and Asia and then in Macedonia and Greece. It was during his second visit to Corinth that he wrote his letter to the Romans, preparing (warning?) them about his intended journey to Rome. Paul’s travel plans, however, were disrupted when he backtracked to Jerusalem and was arrested for causing a riot at the temple. In response to threats against his life, Paul claimed that he was a Roman citizen and that his case should be heard not in Palestine but in Rome. Paul was then ordered to Italy, but the ship on which he was being transported ran aground near Malta. After a few months on the island, Paul set sail again and at last arrived in Rome.
