There was a conspiracy against Paul with more than forty people. These conspirators went to the chief priests with a plan to kill Paul. The nephew of Paul found out about this plan and went to visit Paul. Paul told the centurion to take his nephew to the Roman commander. They went to the Roman commander as he listened privately to him. The Jewish Sanhedrin wanted to have Paul come back. They would kill him on the way there. Thus, the plot was revealed. The Roman commander told Paul’s nephew not to tell anyone.
