2 Timothy 4:16-18
At my first defence, no one came to my support, but everyone deserted me. May it not be held against them. But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. And I was delivered from the lion’s mouth. The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen. (NIVUK)

There is no record of all the events of Paul’s imprisonment and trials in Rome; but this episode was clearly dramatic.  The apostle was being tried in a criminal court, and no Christian wanted to stand with him to support or testify in court.  All human fellowship had gone.  Yet like Jesus (Luke 23:33-34) and Stephen (Acts 7:59-60), Paul asked Father God not to hold their sins against them.  Physically he was alone, with the death sentence hanging over him – death by ferocious lions, in an arena watched by jeering crowds who saw it as sport.
