Acts, Chapter 27 - Paul Is Sent to Rome
27 When it was decided that we would sail for Italy, they proceeded to deliver Paul and some other prisoners to a centurion of the Augustan cohort named Julius. 2 And embarking in an Adramyttian ship, which was about to sail to the regions along the coast of Asia, we put out to sea accompanied by Aristarchus, a Macedonian of Thessalonica. 3 The next day we put in at Sidon; and Julius treated Paul with consideration and allowed him to go to his friends and receive care. 4 From there we put out to sea and sailed under the shelter of Cyprus because the winds were contrary. 5 When we had sailed through the sea along the coast of Cilicia and Pamphylia, we landed at Myra in Lycia. 6 There the centurion found an Alexandrian ship sailing for Italy, and he put us aboard it. 7 When we had sailed slowly for a good many days, and with difficulty had arrived off Cnidus, since the wind did not permit us to go farther, we sailed under the shelter of Crete, off Salmone; 8 and with difficulty sailing past it we came to a place called Fair Havens, near which was the city of Lasea.

- A sacrifice was sent, humble yet deserving reverence because of ancient wisdom, soft-haired in human form sent to die and rise again, the best ruler from the extended land (heaven) to give victory over the flesh, a fisher of men, He would come in the flesh (soft-haired), small and humble (human form) because of God’s love, a blossom for all to see as proclaimed by Paul, born a Jew but speaking to every tribe that Christ died and was anointed with Myrrh, His blood spilled to establish a new covenant with those living in the land of the wolf, residents of the world, the sacrifice would be made at the right age with thorns on His flesh (head) judged for our sins to cover us in His white robe, beautiful and ready for heaven before we become to weary, faint and fall prey to the Lion
