Return to The Apostle Paul

Paul by the Numbers

4 = Number of missionary journeys recorded in the Bible. This ‘counts’ his trip (which included a shipwreck), as a prisoner of the Romans, to Rome. It does not count his journeys to Spain and/or Macedonia which may have occurred between his two Roman imprisonments.

13 = Number of letters (books of the Bible) he wrote.

61 = age at death (he was martyred by the Romans)
