Jerusalem, where he arrived before the feast of
Pentecost, A. D. 58.

25. After his return to Jerusalem from his fourth
apostolic journey, the Jews caused an excitement
against him, and he was sent a prisoner by way of
An-iip' a-tris to Cas-a-re'a, to be tried by Felix,
the governor.

26. Ha\ing been detained a prisoner two years
at Cffisare'a, where he delivered the defences re-
corded in Acts xxii. and xxvi., he availed himself
of his privilege of a Roman citizen by appealing
to the emperor.

27. He was accordingly sent to Rome with other
prisoners, under the care of the centurion Julius,
and was accom.panied by St. L/uke.

28. In their voyage (^ee Map JVo. F7.), they
touched at Si'don and J^Iy'ra, sailed near Cni'dus^

of Mel'i-ta, where they all got safe to shore.

29. From Mel'i-ta they proceeded by Syr'a-cuse,

32. The most of his other epistles had before
this time been written at different places, as may
be seen in the Table on the following page.

33. St. Luke concludes his narrative in the
Acts, with this imprisonment at Rome ; and the sub-
sequent history of St. Paul is uncertain ; but it was
the uniform tradition of the primitive church, that he
was afterwards imprisoned a second time at Rome,
and that he suffered martyrdom under the emperor
Nero, in or about the year A. D. 66.

54 SCRIPTURE GEOGRAPHY.

The dates of several of the Epistles have been much
controverted. According to Dr. Lardner, the Second
Epistle to Timothy was written by Paul, during his first
imprisonment at Rome ; but Michaelis, Rosenmiiller,
Macknight, Paley, and other judicious critics, maintain
that it was written during the apostle's second imprison-
ment, and but little before he suffered martyrdom.

Many learned critics suppose that the First Epistle to
Timothy, and the Epistle to Titus, were written as late
as the year 64 or 65.

Thirteen of the Epistles were avowedly written by
St. Paul ; but the Epistle to the Hebrews, which is
ascribed to him by Dr. Lardner, is anonymous, and the
question respecting the author of it has been much con-
troverted. The prevailing opinion, however, in the
Christian church, has been, that it was written by Paul ;
and this opinion is supported by a majority of modern
critics.
