The designs of those who seek to kill Paul are not only thwarted, but the very arrest of Paul brings him to Rome. STOP means GO! The Book of Acts closes with the final rejection of the Gospel by the Jewish community as a whole in Rome, opening up the Gentiles for Paul who begin to receive the salvation of the Lord.
The end of the Book of Acts fulfils the promise of Jesus made in 1:8, that through the power of the Holy Spirit, the disciples would witness to Jesus in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and the end of the earth. For the ancient world, Rome and its empire stretching to Spain in the west was understood as the end of the earth.
Place yourself amid the new crowd of Gentiles, sensing the energy of the Kingdom that flows from Paul’s little rented house. Where will you take the Good News of the Kingdom?
