The hope of Israel

After Paul arrived in Rome, he called for the Jewish leaders, wanting to speak to them of the Good News that we have in Jesus Christ, and Paul set up a conversation in this manner,

“For this reason therefore I have called for you, to see you and speak with you, because for the hope of Israel I am bound with this chain” (Acts 28:20).

He only preached what the Law and the Prophets had said would come, and the fulfillment of the promises to the fathers in the person of Jesus of Nazareth, but Paul also preached that this promise was for all people. For that reason, the Jews persecuted him. What would the Jews in Rome do?
