A Kind Centurion Named Julius
When it was decided that we [Luke and Paul] should sail to Italy, they handed Paul and some other prisoners over to a centurion named Julius.
Before long an offshore wind of hurricane force called a "Northeaster" struck. Finally, all hope of our surviving was taken away. The soldiers planned to kill the prisoners so that none might swim away and escape, but the centurion [Julius] wanted to save Paul.- Acts 27:14, 20b, 42a-43a
Once we [Luke and Paul] had reached safety we learned that the island was called Malta. The natives showed us extraordinary hospitality; they lit a fire and welcomed all of us because it had begun to rain and was cold.
- Acts 28:1-2
St. Paul's Bay in Bugibba, Malta
