In Paul’s preaching to the Roman synagogue leaders in Acts 23, we see the fulfillment of God’s promise that Paul would testify about Christ in Rome. Paul taught from the Old Testament, using verifiable historical data to fuse the biblical Christ with the historical Jesus in the minds of his listeners and boldly urging them to turn to Christ in faith. Alistair Begg notes that the same sense of urgency marks every occasion on which the Gospel is presented. No one can presume a second opportunity to hear and respond.
23When they had appointed a day for him, they came to him at his lodging in greater numbers. From morning till evening he expounded to them, testifying to the kingdom of God and trying to convince them about Jesus both from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets.
