Like Paul use every opportunity to share the Gospel Paul was considered an outstanding Jew until he saw that Jesus was indeed the promised Messiah of Israel, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, who came to save all men. Then Paul became a victim of Jewish hate, who plotted to have him murdered, they had Paul delivered into the hands of the Romans who judicially examined Paul and kept on wanting to release him because they found Paul innocent of anything deserving the death penalty. But Paul was compelled to use his rights as a Roman citizen to appeal to Ceaser. Paul used the chains that bound him to preach the gospel to the whole Pretorian Guard. God has given us all a will, (volition) so that when the spirit of God calls us we can choose to either rebel against or follow God. The Apostle Paul was a prisoner in Rome for preaching the Gospel to the Jews, whom he loved so much. The Jews chose to rebel against the Messiah, King of Israel and they plotted to falsely accuse Jesus and have Him murdered. They murdered Jesus on false charges and when Jesus rose from the dead they also tried to suppress that. Paul himself saw Jesus again on the road to Damascus.
