After leaving Puteoli, Paul and his companions traveled on to Rome. Brethren at Rome had heard that he was coming. Leaving the city to meet him, they came to Appii Forum. This effort caused Paul to take fresh courage and give thanks to God when he saw them.
Paul was delivered into the hands of the captain of the Roman guards. Paul, unlike the other prisoners, was allowed to live by himself with only one soldier who kept watch over him.
