Paul speaks to the Jews in Rome

After Paul arrived in Rome, he spoke to the Jewish leaders there.  Paul explained to them that the Romans wanted to release him, but he appealed to Caesar.  Thus, he was bound in chains.  The Roman Jews had not heard any bad things about Paul.  However, they wanted to know about this Jewish sect of Christians.  Then Paul testified about Jesus.  Some were convinced by Paul, who cited the prophet Isaiah and the Holy Spirit about listening and seeing without understanding.  These Jewish leaders themselves did not understand.  Paul said that the gentiles would listen.  Thus, the Roman Jewish leaders departed.  Paul stayed two more years in Rome proclaiming the kingdom of God.  This is the end of adventures of Paul without any clear conclusion.
