The Lost Chapter of Acts of the Apostles
Revised & Expanded Edition
|| The Sonnini Manuscript better known as The Long Lost Chapter of The Acts of the Apostles contains the account of Paul's journey in Spain and Britain. The document purporting to be the concluding portion of the Acts of the Apostles covers a portion of the period after Paul's two years enforced residence in Rome in his own hired house. It is written in the style of the Acts and reads like a continuation.
The Bible gives a fairly complete account of the life of St. Paul; his conversion his missionary journeys and his martyrdom in Rome. But there is a period of time approximately six years of which the Bible remains silent. This would be the period after his trial and acquittal in Rome and before his return to Rome to cast his fate with his many converts. These were his Christian brethren who were being put to death by the thousands during the reign of Emperor Nero.
