The well-known capital of Italy and the metropolis of the Roman empire. There were 'strangers' from Rome at Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost, where they would doubtless hear the gospel, some may have been converted, and carried the gospel back with them. Acts 2:10 . Paul wrote his epistle to the saints at Rome about A.D. 58. He was a prisoner there in his own hired house for two years, about A.D. 61,62, being, as was usual, chained to a soldier. But the gospel spread thereby, and entered Caesar's household. Philippians 1:13 ; Philippians 4:22 .

PAPAL ROME is clearly spoken of, and its doom announced in Revelation 17 and Revelation 18 : "the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sitteth." See under REVELATION.
