(Acts 28:1-6) Paul and the others arrived at the island of Malta. The people living in Malta were kind. Paul was building a fire when a snake came and bit him. Everyone thought Paul was a murderer because of his snake bite. After Paul flung the snake off into the fire, he did not die or swell up from the snake bite, the people of Malta called him a god.
(Acts 28:7-10) The island chief then showed them lots of hospitality, and let them into his home. The chiefs father was in his home, and was very sick. Paul then healed him of his sickness along with every other sick person on the island.Then the people of Malta all honoured Paul and gave them all the supplies they needed.
(Acts 28:11-16) They then went to Syracuse for three days. Then they went to Rhegium, Puteoli, and Rome. When they arrived in Rome, people gathered around them to see them, which encouraged Paul to preach the gospel. Paul was now out of prison, and was allowed to live by himself with only one other guard.
(Acts 28:17-20) Paul called together the local Jewish leaders. Paul explains his arrest and says “It is because of the hope of Israel that I am bound with this chain.
(Acts 28:21-25) The Jewish leaders had nothing against him. They asked to hear Paul’s preaching. The Jewish leaders arranged to meet Paul. He witnessed to them, and many people believed, but a few others did not believe the truth of God that Paul spoke.
(Acts 28:26-31) Paul continued to preach. He stayed in Rome for four years proclaiming the kingdom of God and preaching about Jesus with boldness and without hindrance.
