Yesterday's first reading had Paul boarding a ship for Palestine, "knowing that chains and hardship await" (and the people on shore crying their eyes out at the realization that they would never see his face again). In today's reading, Paul is already in custody. We'll see Paul deal with those chains with grace and humor: to King Agrippa he would testify, "I wish that everyone could be as I am...but without these chains."
