Context Readings

Paul In Caesarea

12 When we heard this, we and all the people there begged him not to go up to Jerusalem. 13 Then Paul answered, "What do you mean by crying and breaking my heart? Why, I am ready not only to be bound at Jerusalem but to die there for the sake of the Lord Jesus." 14 So, since he would not yield to our appeal, we stopped begging him, and said, "The Lord's will be done!"
