Paul Arrested and Taken to Rome: Part 5 (**spoilers**)

Once again, welcome back.  Paul now was being sent off to Rome to stand trial before Caesar, and he was handed over to the control of Julius the Centurion.  The centurion took Paul aboard a ship and sailed along the ports of the province of Asia.  Paul’s companions, such as Aristarchus and Luke, continued to travel with Paul, even as he was under arrest.  When they arrived a Sidon, Julius allowed Paul to go to some of his friends that they might care for his needs.  From there they sailed to Myra in Lycia where they found an Alexandrian Ship that was on its way to Italy.  The ships from Alexandria were responsible for bring grain to Rome from Egypt.
