Paul In Roman Custody


In this book, Rapske uses ancient literary sources and archaeological evidence to uncover important background on the custodial system of the Graeco-Roman world in order to better view Paul’s persona and Christian mission. This study shows Luke to be keenly aware of the practical and theological threat that imprisonment posed for Paul and argues that this understanding motivated one of Luke’s primary objectives in his writing of Luke-Acts to defend or justify the prisoner missionary Paul to the reader.
