Ac 27:1 The Sea Voyage to Rome SUMMARY OF ACTS 27: The Centurion in Charge of Paul Embarks with Him for Rome. At Myra Take an Alexandrian Corn Ship. The Weather Tempestuous. Paul Advises the Centurion to Go into Harbor for the Winter. Caught by the Euroclydon and Driven. After Fourteen Days of Drifting, Paul Assures Them That All Will. Escape. The Ship Runs Ashore on the Island of Malta and Is Destroyed. The Men All Saved. When it was determined. When all was settled that Paul should go to Italy, and the time appointed had come. Delivered Paul and certain other prisoners. No information is given concerning these companions in bonds. Julius, a centurion. All we learn of this Roman officer is favorable. It is remarkable how uniformly Paul commanded the respect of the Roman officials with whom he came in contact. Sergius Paulus (Ac 13:7-12), Gallio (Ac 18:12-17), Felix (Ac 24:22,23), Festus (Ac 25:12-14), and Julius are examples of this. Of Augustus' band. Rather, "cohort". Josephus says that this period one of the cohorts stationed at Caesarea took the name of Augustus ("Wars", 2:12,7 and 2:12,5).
