It is in exact conformity, therefore, with the truth of St. Paul's situation at this time, that he declares himself to be "an ambassador in a chain," [en halusis ,] (Eph 6:20;) and the exactness is the more remarkable, as [halusis ,] a chain is no where used in the singular number to express any other kind of custody. 26:29; Eph 3:1; 4:1; 6:20; Php 1:13; Col 4:18; 2Ti 1:10; 2:9Phm 1:10,13 We.Ex 11:7; Isa 41:11; 50:8; 54:17 for.16:20,21; 17:6,7; 24:5,6,14; Lu 2:34; 1Pe 2:12; 3:16; 4:14-16sect.5:17; 15:5; 26:5; 1Co 11:19; *marg: there came.Phm 1:2he expounded.17:2,3; 18:4,28; 19:8; 26:22,23both.26:6,22; Lu 24:26,27,44from.20:9-11; Joh 4:34 13:48-50; 14:4; 17:4,5; 18:6-8; 19:8,9; Ro 3:3; 11:4-6 agreed.29well.Mt 15:7; Mr 7:6; 2Pe 1:21 Go.Isa 6:9,10; Eze 12:2; Mt 13:14,15; Mr 4:12; Lu 8:10; Joh 12:38-40Ro 11:8-10Hearing.De 29:4; Ps 81:11,12; Isa 29:10,14; 42:19,20; 66:4; Jer 5:21Eze 3:6,7; 12:2; Mr 8:17,18; Lu 24:25,45; 2Co 4:4-6 27 it known.2:14; 4:10; 13:38; Eze 36:32the salvation.Ps 98:2,3; Isa 49:6; 52:10; La 3:26; Lu 2:30-32; 3:6sent.11:18; 13:46,47; 14:27; 15:14,17; 18:6; 22:21; 26:17,18Mt 21:41-43; Ro 3:29,30; 4:11; 11:11; 15:8-16 great reasoning.25; Mt 10:34-36; Lu 12:51; Joh 7:40-53 Paul.St. Paul, after his release, is supposed to have visited Judæa, in the way to which he left Titus at Crete, (Tit 1:5,) and then returned through Syria, Cilicia, Asia Minor, and Greece, to Rome; where, according to primitive tradition, he was beheaded by order of Nero, A.D. 66, at Aquae Saiviae, three miles from Rome, and interred in the Via Ostensis, two miles from the city, where Constantine erected a church. dwelt.16 Cir.

The Acts of the Apostles is a most valuable portion of Divine revelation; and, independently of its universal reception in the Christian church, as an authentic and inspired production, it bears the most satisfactory internal evidence of its authenticity and truth. St. Luke's long attendance upon St. Paul, and his having been an eyewitness of many of the facts which he has recorded, independently of his Divine inspiration, render him a most suitable and credible historian; and his medical knowledge, for he is allowed to have been a physician, enabled him both to form a proper judgment of the miraculous cures which were performed by St. Paul, and to give an authentic and circumstantial detail of them. The plainness and simplicity of the narrative are also strong circumstances in its favour. The history of the Acts is one of the most important parts of the Sacred History, for without it neither the Gospels nor Epistles could have been so clearly understood; but by the aid of it the whole scheme of the Christian revelation is set before us in a clear and easy view.
