PaulsShipwreck
“Saint Paul by Bartolomeo Montagna”

The incident occurred on his way towards Rome as a prisoner. Paul had advised against such a voyage it being a bad time of year to travel. Deliberately ignoring his warning, they set sail anyways. As they went, a storm came and damaged the boat (Acts 27:15-16). After many days and several failed attempts to reach safety or get rescued the men began to lose hope. Paul then stood and said, “Sirs, ye should have hearkened unto me, and not have loosed from Crete, and to have gained this harm and loss.  – And now I exhort  you to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of any man’s life among  you, but of the ship.”

Indeed the ship did wreck on an island and the men reached shore alive and unharmed. The captors were then advised to slay the prisoners lest they try to escape and swim away. However they were spared because of Paul’s advice and council in saving them all.
