The closing chapter, of course, sits here in Acts and it just all at once seems like it drops the
whole thing. I think it basically is because the original revelation of God’s greatness started in
Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost, then it moved to Samaria, then it moved to other cities. It
moved from city to city across the then known world. Then it moved from province to province
and finally ends up in the greatest of all the metropolitan cities of its day and of its time; in
Rome, with the greatest man of God perhaps the world has never seen as a born again son of
God; Paul. Some thirteen to fifteen years before he gets to Rome he writes the epistle that you
and I have read in the Bible, the Book of Romans. So when we come to this 28th chapter of
Acts which is the history of the rise and the expansion of the Christian Church, He just gets him
to Rome and that’s the end of it. Once God gets it to Rome, here in the Book of Acts, He just
stops it. God had quite a time getting him there but he finally ended up there.

Victor Paul Wierwille was a Bible scholar and teacher for over four decades.
By means of Dr. Wierwille's dynamic teaching of the accuracy and integrity of God's Word, foundational class and advanced class graduates of Power for Abundant Living have learned that the one great requirement for every student of the Bible is to rightly divide the Word of Truth. Thus, his presentation of the Word of God was designed for students who desire the in-depth-accuracy of God’s Word.
In his many years of research, Dr. Wierwille studied with such men as Karl Barth, E. Stanley Jones, Glenn Clark, Bishop K.C. Pillai, and George M. Lamsa. His formal training included Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Theology degrees from Mission House (Lakeland) College and Seminary. He studied at the University of Chicago and at Princeton Theological Seminary from which he received a Master of Theology degree in Practical Theology.
