When Paul got to Rome he was allowed to be put under "house arrest". He was permitted to live by himself with a soldier to guard him. After three days he called together the Jewish leaders of the city and told them his story. They were glad for an opportunity to talk with him. They had heard people talking about this new religion, and they wanted to learn more about it. They made arrangements to meet again, and even more people came to the house. Paul talked to them all day long, from morning to evening. He told them about Jesus. He tried to show them that Jesus was the One about whom the prophets had written. Some of the people were convinced, but others would not believe his words. Paul was able to preach for two whole years from his rented house. Secular history (not the Bible) tells us that Paul was beheaded around AD 67. If you visit Rome today you can see the remains of the Colosseum which was completed in 80 A.D. (which would probably be after the death of Paul).
