      That is, the chain with which he was bound to the 'soldier
      that kept him;' (ver. 16;) a mode of custody which Dr. Lardner
      has shown was in use among the Romans.  It is in exact
      conformity, therefore, with the truth of Paul's situation
      at this time, that he declares himself to be 'an ambassador in
      a chain,' [en <1722> halusis <254>,] (Ep. 20 6:20;) and the
      exactness is the more remarkable, as [halusis <254>,] a chain
      is no where used in the singular number to express any other
      kind of custody.

      Greece, to Rome; where, according to primitive tradition, he
      was beheaded by order of Nero, A.D. 66, at Aquae Saiviae, three

             CONCLUDING REMARKS ON THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES.
    
    The Acts of the Apostles is a most valuable portion of Divine
    revelation; and, independently of its universal reception in the
    Christian church, as an authentic and inspired production, it
    bears the most satisfactory internal evidence of its
    authenticity and truth.  Luke's long attendance upon
    Paul, and his having been an eyewitness of many of the facts
    which he has recorded, independently of his Divine inspiration,
    render him a most suitable and credible historian; and his
    medical knowledge, for he is allowed to have been a physician,
    enabled him both to form a proper judgment of the miraculous
    cures which were performed by Paul, and to give an
    authentic and circumstantial detail of them.  The plainness and
    simplicity of the narrative are also strong circumstances in its
    favor.  The history of the Acts is one of the most important
    parts of the Sacred History, for without it neither the Gospels
    nor Epistles could have been so clearly understood; but by the
    aid of it the whole scheme of the Christian revelation is set
    before us in a clear and easy view.
