The final passage in the book of Acts has two parts: Paul's meeting with the Roman Jews (vv. 23-28), and Luke's summary of Paul's ongoing ministry of the word and hospitality (vv. 30-31). The main stress in this passage is that Paul's message of the kingdom of God and the Lord Jesus, repeated in vv. 23 and 31, yields a divided response among his own people yet continues to go forth "unhindered."
