The Story in Review- Chapter Thirty
When you add together the average miles traveled by the average person of the day, the means of travel that existed during the period the individual lived in, the difficulty of getting from one place to another at a particular period of time & the economic ability to said traveler as well as opposition to said travels it is a fair bet that when taking all things into consideration St. Paul is probably the most well traveled individual in the history of the world.
Whether to the cities in which he would start or visit churches he had previously begun, or to Jerusalem so as to bring gifts to the Christians or to face the Sanhedrin, the ultimate destination Paul sought was to make it to Rome. Jesus had promised that he would witness before kings and the pinnacle of the kings of the world was the one who lived in Rome. Paul appealed to Caesar and to Caesar he would go. Hardship, chains, danger these to Paul were but trivialities compared to the greater glory of knowing Jesus and making Him known.
