The Life of Paul Part 2

THE LIFE OF PAUL PART 2

PICTURE 01
IN THE YEAR 52 Paul said farewell to the believers in Antioch and set off on his THIRD MISSIONARY TRIP
PICTURE 02 MAP
Paul encouraged the believers in Derbe, Lystra, Iconium and Antioch. In the YEAR 53 Paul arrived in Ephesus.
PICTURE 03
Paul baptised the believers in Ephesus and when he laid hands on them, they spoke in new languages and prophesied.
PICTURE 04
For three months Paul preached in the synagogue.
PICTURE 05
Then he rented a school hall where he preached for two years.
PICTURE 06
It was during this period, that Bible scholars believe that Paul sailed from Ephesus to Corinth at least once.
PICTURE 07
God did special miracles through the hands of Paul.
PICTURE 08
Handkerchiefs were taken from him to those that were sick and God healed them.
PICTURE 09
Many people, who believed the message of Paul, brought their books of magic and burned them.
PICTURE 10
IT WAS IN THE YEAR 54 
that Claudius was poisoned by his fourth wife Agrippina.
PICTURE 11
The fifth Roman Emperor was Nero Domitius.
PICTURE 12
Nero’s mother was Agrippina the wife of Claudius, so Claudius was Nero’s step father.
PICTURE 13
IN THE YEAR 55
 while in Ephesus Paul wrote a letter to the BELIEVERS AT CORINTH
PICTURE 14
Paul gave the letter to Timothy and Erastus to deliver.
PICTURE 15
The preaching of Paul in Ephesus had affected the profits of the silversmiths
PICTURE 16
The people had stopped buying idols of the goddess Diana.
PICTURE 17
So the businessmen kidnapped some believers and there was a riot in the city.
PICTURE 18
So Paul travelled to Troas and began preaching there.
PICTURE 19
After Paul left Troas he wrote his SECOND LETTER TO THE CORINTHIAN BELIEVERS from either Philipi Thesalonica or Berea.
PICTURE 20
We know this because in the first chapter he tells them about the riot in Ephesus.
PICTURE 21
And in the second chapter he tells them about his preaching in Troas.
PICTURE 22
Paul eventually arrived in Corinth
PICTURE 23
Where he preached for three months.
PICTURE 24
In THE YEAR OF 56 at Corinth Paul wrote his letter to the believers in Rome
PICTURE 25
Phebe who was probably expelled from Rome by Claudius seven years earlier, delivered the letter.
PICTURE 26
The non believing Jews in Corinth conspired against Paul.
PICTURE 27
So Paul decided to take the long route to Jerusalem, travelling through Berea, Thessallonica, Phillipi and on to Troas.
PICTURE 28
One night while Paul was preaching in Troas, a man went to sleep, fell out of the window and died.
PICTURE 29
Paul embraced him and said to the people, “Don’t trouble yourselves, he is alive.”
PICTURE 30
As Paul travelled to Jerusalem, he met with the leaders of the Ephesian church.
PICTURE 31
Whilst praying they all wept before they took Paul to the Jerusalem ship.
PICTURE 32
In Jerusalem
PICTURE 33
Paul was attacked by the non believing Jews; “Get him he teaches against our religion.”
PICTURE 34
As they were about to kill Paul, the Roman commander intervened.
PICTURE 35
Paul was given permission to speak and as he gave his testimony the Jews started rioting again.
PICTURE 36
When the Captain discovered that Paul was a Roman citizen, he didn’t know what to do.
PICTURE 37
Paul was allowed to speak to the Jewish leaders, but they were divided. So Paul was re-arrested for his own safety.
PICTURE 38
The next day Paul’s nephew told the captain that forty of the Jews had planned to assassinate his uncle.
PICTURE 39
That night an escort of over four hundred soldiers, escorted Paul north to Caesarea.
PICTURE 40
Felix the governor and his wife sent for Paul, and as Paul shared his faith and the judgement to come, Felix trembled.
PICTURE 41
Two years passed, and IN THE YEAR OF 59 a new Governor called Festus was appointed.
PICTURE 42
The Jews asked for Paul to be tried in Jerusalem, because they had a plan to assassinate him on route.
PICTURE 43
But Paul was given permission to have his trial in Rome
PICTURE 44
Whilst under arrest, Paul shared his testimony with the rich and famous.
PICTURE 45
Eventually Paul and his escort of soldiers set sail for Rome.
PICTURE 46
During a terrible storm Paul told his shipmates, “God has told me that everyone will be saved.”
PICTURE 47
The next day the ship ran aground on Malta and everyone was saved.
PICTURE 48
While making a fire Paul was bitten by a deadly snake.
PICTURE 49
When Paul didn’t drop dead, the people thought he was a god.
PICTURE 50
Three months later IN THE YEAR 60, they left Malta PICTURE 51
And sailed to Rome.
PICTURE 52
Some of the Christians travelled from Rome to meet him.
PICTURE 53
Paul was placed under house arrest and many people came to hear about the Jewish Messiah.
PICTURE 54
Paul lived in the house for two years and many Jews from the synagogue came to hear him preach.
PICTURE 55
Paul wrote four letters from Rome. Firstly the letter to the believers at EPHESUS, secondly the letter to the believers at PHILIPPI,
thirdly the letter to the COLOSIAN believers.
PICTURE 56
Colossi was one hundred miles from Ephesus, the church was probably started during Paul’s three years with the Ephesians.
PICTURE 57
A runaway slave was delivering the Colossian letter. The last of Paul’s prison letters was to PHILEMON.
PICTURE 58
Paul personally knew Philemon, who was the master of the runaway slave.
PICTURE 59
IN THE YEAR OF 62 
after five years in prison, Paul was released.
PICTURE 60
Paul wrote a letter to Timothy who was a leader in the Ephesian church. He told Timothy that he was again preaching;
PICTURE 61
In Philippi, Thessalonica, and Berea.
PICTURE 62
Paul also sailed to Crete with Titus who was with him in Corinth.
PICTURE 63
He  had to leave Crete in a hurry, so Paul wrote TITUS a letter which today we have in the Bible.
PICTURE 64
Paul was re-arrested and expecting to be executed.
PICTURE 65
It was here that Paul wrote his last and most moving letter, known as 2nd TIMOTHY.
PICTURE 66
The great fire of Rome started on the 19th of July IN THE YEAR 64 and Christians were accused of arson.
PICTURE 67
Traditionally this is when Paul was arrested and executed by Nero, sometime between the fire.
PICTURE 68
And when Nero was forced to commit suicide on June 9th IN THE YEAR 68.
PICTURE 69
In the YEAR OF 66 the Jewish people started to revolt against Rome.
PICTURE 70
This was the start of the Jewish wars which would last for seven years.
PICTURE 71
Immediately after Nero’s suicide in 68, there was a violent power struggle, and in just one year there were four Emperors Nero
albaOtho and Vitellius. However, they all suffered violent deaths.
PICTURE 72
DURING THE YEAR 69
 the Roman general Vespasian, surrounded the city walls of Jerusalem, but cut short the attack and left for
Rome to become the new emperor.
PICTURE 73
Heeding the words of Jesus “when you see Jerusalem surrounded by an army get out.” The believers left.
PICTURE 74
Vespasian sent his son Titus, to Jerusalem to finish the siege.
PICTURE 75
IN MAY OF THE YEAR 70
  in the middle of the seven year tribulation, Jerusalem was set alight and became a lake of fire.
PICTURE 76
The temple was destroyed and not one stone was left standing, just as Jesus said would happen.
PICTURE 77
The great seven year tribulation against the Jewish people ended IN THE YEAR 73 when around 15,000 Roman troops overcame
he mountain fortress at Masada in southern Israel.
PICTURE 78
With sacrifices finished, the abomination of desolation ended, the end times of the Old Covenant were complete.
