On to Jerusalem

1 After we1 had torn ourselves away from them, we put out to sea and sailed straight to Cos. The next day we went to Rhodes and from there to Patara. 2 We found a ship crossing over to Phoenicia,2 went on board and set sail. 3 After sighting Cyprus and passing to the south of it, we sailed on to Syria.3 We landed at Tyre, where our ship was to unload its cargo. 4 Finding the disciples4 there, we stayed with them seven days. Through the Spirit5 they urged Paul not to go on to Jerusalem. 5 But when our time was up, we left and continued on our way. All the disciples and their wives and children accompanied us out of the city, and there on the beach we knelt to pray.6 6 After saying good-by to each other, we went aboard the ship, and they returned home. 7 We continued our voyage from Tyre7 and landed at Ptolemais, where we greeted the brothers8 and stayed with them for a day. 8 Leaving the next day, we reached Caesarea9 and stayed at the house of Philip10 the evangelist,11 one of the Seven. 9 He had four unmarried daughters who prophesied.12 10 After we had been there a number of days, a prophet named Agabus13 came down from Judea. 11 Coming over to us, he took Paul's belt, tied his own hands and feet with it and said, "The Holy Spirit says,14 'In this way the Jews of Jerusalem will bind15 the owner of this belt and will hand him over to the Gentiles.' "16 12 When we heard this, we and the people there pleaded with Paul not to go up to Jerusalem. 13 Then Paul answered, "Why are you weeping and breaking my heart? I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die17 in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus."18 14 When he would not be dissuaded, we gave up19 and said, "The Lord's will be done."20 15 After this, we got ready and went up to Jerusalem.21 16 Some of the disciples from Caesarea22 accompanied us and brought us to the home of Mnason, where we were to stay. He was a man from Cyprus23 and one of the early disciples.

Paul's Arrival at Jerusalem
