The IVP New Testament Commentary Series – To Jerusalem—By Sea to Palestine (21:1-16)
To Jerusalem—By Sea to Palestine (21:1-16)

Patrick Henry's rallying cry in the American Revolution, "Give me liberty or give me death!" captures the essence of the determination needed to pursue a goal no matter the cost. This Paul displays on his way to Jerusalem. Following in the steps of the Lord Jesus, Paul by his life sets the seal of authenticity on the gospel (Lk 9:22, 44, 51/Acts 20:22-24; 21:4, 10-11; compare Lk 18:31-34; Mt 16:23/Acts 21:4, 12; compare Lk 9:45). So far the only reason Luke has given us for Paul's willingness to embrace danger is his determination to complete "the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace" (Acts 20:24).
