What St. Paul would have seen

Here's a view St. Paul might have seen when he was imprisoned in Caesarea, just before he was sent off to Rome. When he saw this view there would have been a palace on the property that was sometimes occupied by King Herod.

Here's a snippet of Scripture from Acts 23:

Then [the tribune] summoned two of the centurions and said, "Get ready to leave by nine o'clock tonight for Caesarea with two hundred soldiers, seventy horsemen, and two hundred spearmen. also provide mounts for Paul to ride, and take him safely to Felix he governor."

Read all about it in Acts chapter 23-28 .

In peace,
