During his two years of house arrest in Rome, Paul continued to boldly preach the kingdom of God and teach about the Lord Jesus Christ to all who visited him. From a human perspective, the events of his journey seemed to work against him and to oppose God’s purposes. In retrospect, though, we can see God’s providence throughout, ultimately serving to advance the Gospel. Alistair Begg points out that Paul’s experience is the beginning of an even greater story—one that is still unfolding today as the Holy Spirit enables the spread of God’s Word to the ends of the earth.
30He lived there two whole years at his own expense,7 and welcomed all who came to him, 31proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance.
