Paul kept “open house” and received anybody who wanted to discuss the things of the kingdom of God. He was chained to a guard who was relieved every six hours, but who was forced to listen as Paul preached and taught and prayed. No wonder some of them were saved! (; )During these two years in Rome, Paul wrote Philippians, Ephesians, Colossians, and Philemon. He expected to be released (; ; ) and most students agree that he was. During this time, he had Timothy with him (; ; ), as well as John Mark, Luke, Aristarchus, Epaphras, Justus, and Demas (; ). He also met Philemon’s runaway slave Onesimus and led him to faith in Christ (). Epaphroditus brought a gift to him from the Philippian church and almost died ministering to Paul (; ). Tychicus was Paul’s “mailman” who delivered Ephesians (), Colossians, and Philemon ().
