With allusions to Jonah, the Old Testament prophet to the Gentiles, Paul sails to Rome but his ship is caught in a storm. The sailors wind up doing as he says, which saves their lives, though they lose the ship.
They crash on Malta, and Paul heals many there. They winter for 3 months before going on to Rome, where Paul meets believers, and calls together the Jews. They hadn't heard from the Jews in Judea or elsewhere about Paul. He preaches to them, and the same thing that always happens happens: some believe, some don't. Paul tells them he is going to the Gentiles next.
