Later in chapter 22 Paul gives a sermon and tells pretty much his testimony and about how Christians were being persecuted. Paul then gets in trouble but then shows his Roman citizenship. In chapter 23 Paul rebukes the high priest. Paul is rescued by a Roman soldier and is told in a dream that he should go to Rome. In chapter 24 Paul is accused of going against the ways of the temple. Paul says that there were no witnesses so he should be free. Lastly in chapter 25 Paul gets put on trial again and Festus makes a speech trying to back up the ways of Paul.
In chapter 26 Paul gives his testimony, which is against the Jewish accusers of Paul. He tells Moses predicted the coming of Christ. In chapter 27 Paul is taken to Crete.

Finally when Paul reaches Rome he met with Jewish leaders and again stresses Moses’ prediction of Christ. Paul then spends two years in Rome
