Paul s third missionary journey is underway as he heads to Ephesus
where he ll establish a ministry base for Asia, and as Max, Liz and
Nigel work behind the scenes to make vital connections, uncover
plots and inspire the formation of a New Testament. Little does
Paul realize that his letters to the Philippians, Romans, and
Corinthians will become the seminal letters of the Christian faith.
Reunited with Dr. Luke, Paul uncovers a plot on his life by the
Jews yet boldly travels on to Jerusalem where he is arrested and
imprisoned in Caesarea for two years. Luke takes advantage of this
time to interview Mary, John and other eyewitnesses of Jesus to
capture in his journalthe greatest story ever told. All the while
murder plots and power struggles abound in Rome with the rise of
the infamous Nero as emperor. When Paul finally appeals to Caesar
before Governor Festus, so begins a treacherous voyage to Rome and
a surprising encounter with the next generation of the Roman family
of Antonius, Julius the Roman Centurion. After months at sea and a
harrowing shipwreck on Malta, Paul arrives in Rome yet must spend
two years under house arrest before his trial before Emperor Nero.
Julius arranges for his brother Theophilus to be Paul s legal
counsel in Rome, and Luke writes two letters (Luke and Acts) to
help him prepare Paul s case. Hope abounds when Nero releases Paul
and drops the charges of the Jews. He is finally free to continue
his mission to spread the good news of Jesus. But the Enemy has
other plans, and manifests once more as the evil lion Lucifer to
come after the Christians. A wave of persecution sweeps across the
Roman Empire as believers are forced underground and face horrific
death through Nero s cruel whims or in the arena with lions. Peter
and Paul are finally arrested and sentenced to death in Rome, but
not before they write several last letters to strengthen the
church. Nero s excesses spell his doom, and a new era of emperors
is ushered in with the rise of the Flavian Dynasty. With the rise
of Domitian comes increased persecution of the church and the exile
of John on Patmos. He laments being the last remaining disciple but
his hope is restored by the Revelation and release from Patmos.
This heart-gripping, action-packed adventure concludes a two-book
saga that brings to life the events of Acts and the birth of
Christianity while showing how each book of the New Testament came
