THIS WEEK IN HISTORY: The Apostle Paul was shipwrecked in Malta
On 10th February 60 AD, Paul the Apostle, having been falsely accused and imprisoned, was shipwrecked on his way to Rome under military escort to face charges.
The Acts of the Apostles tell the story of how Paul was being taken to Rome to be tried as a political rebel, but the ship carrying him and 274 others was caught in a violent storm and shipwrecked on the Maltese coast. All aboard swam safely to land.
The site of the wreck is traditionally known as St. Paul’s Island, and is marked by a statue commemorating the event.
God’s protection meant Paul finally arrived in Rome having survived both a storm, a shipwreck and a snake bite.
