Augustan Cohort

Resource Toolbox
A unit of the Roman army stationed in Syria from about A.D. 6. The cohort's place among the rest of the Roman army is indicated by the fact that it was named after the emperor. This special unit was given charge of Paul on his way to Rome (Acts 27:1 ). In Luke's eyes, this demonstrated the importance of Paul, and more importantly, the gospel that Paul preached.
