On to Phoenicia (Acts 21:2)

“We found a ship

Bound for Phoenicia.

We went on board.

We set sail.”

καὶ εὑρόντες πλοῖον διαπερῶν εἰς Φοινίκην, ἐπιβάντες ἀνήχθημεν.

The author of Acts indicated that they found a ship (καὶ εὑρόντες πλοῖον) bound (διαπερῶν) for Phoenicia (εἰς Φοινίκην).  They went on board (ἐπιβάντες) and set sail (ἀνήχθημεν).  At Patara, Paul and his companions found a ship that was going to Phoenicia, modern day Lebanon.  Thus, they or “we”, including the author of Acts, got on board and set sail for the Phoenician coast, west of Israel, about a 400-mile trip.  They would be on this ship for some time.  Have you ever been to Lebanon?
