Paul wanted to go to Rome to preach the gospel, but first he felt he needed to go to Jerusalem one last time. People kept telling him that it was too dangerous, because they knew that there were people in Judea who wanted to see him dead. Along the way, as they stopped in seaport cities, he met and worshipped with the believers. People were so glad to see him, but they were worried, too. Women and children would come out with their husbands to pray and ask God to give Paul a safe journey.
