When St. Paul arrived in Jerusalem in A.D. 57, he was arrested at the Temple Mount for inciting a riot. Asserting his Roman citizenship, St. Paul was held under protective custody for two years at Herod's palace in Caesarea Maritima until his case could be adjudicated by governor Felix, procurator of Judea from A.D. 52-60. When Felix's term expired, governor Festus replaced him, forcing St. Paul to assert his rights as a Roman citizen, appealing his case directly to Rome. After a tumultuous sea voyage (during which St. Paul was shipwrecked on the island of Malta!) he arrived in Rome, where he took up residence "in his own rented house," protected by a Roman guard, since the Jerusalem Jews had vowed to have him killed.

For two years (A.D. 60-62) St. Paul "received all who came to him and with complete assurance and without hindrance he proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ" (28: 30-31). Importantly, St. Paul was not in prison during this time; rather, he was under protective custody, as a Roman citizen, free to come and go. During St. Paul's stay in Rome he wrote three epistles and one personal letter: Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Philemon. In this series Dr. Creasy will examine St. Paul's mistakenly-called "Prison Epistles," viewing each in light of their historical, literary and theological context and exploring how each helped shape Christianity, as we know it today.
