“And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more.”
King James Version (KJV)
20:25 Ye shall see my face no more - He wisely inserts this, that what follows might make the deeper impression.
Ac 20:25 Ye . . . shall see my face no more. Paul does not state this as a revelation, but as his conviction. He then thought it not improbable that he would soon die for Christ. Many think that he was released from his first imprisonment in Rome. Dean Howson says: ``It is "almost" certain that Paul, after his liberation from the imprisonment spoken of in Acts 28 did revisit the Asian churches (see notices and greetings and directions in 2Ti 4:10-12,20,21 Tit 1:5 especially the words, "Trophimus I have left at Miletum sick").''
