The apostle Paul is under house arrest in Rome and is on his own except for a Roman Soldier guard. The guard is new and, when he is not in Paulâ€™s room, insists on locking the door.
Luke arrives to see Paul but the guard has gone next door to see a friend who is guarding another detainee. Despite the locked door, the two friends are able to talk to one another. Both find great encouragement as Paul reflects on many of the things he has written to the churches.
Even though the apostle faces a very uncertain future, Luke (offstage) finds Paul in good spirits and quick to rejoice in the events of the past and his hope of the future. Using dialog taken almost entirely from the New Testament, the Bible takes on a new, thrilling dynamic as this drama unfolds.
