So I'm in the early stages of writing an adaptation of St. Paul's journey from Ceasarea to Rome in 60 AD. I have this passage and wanted to get thoughts on the possible meanings here. (You don't need to be a scholar, I'm taking large liberties within the text.) Okay, so after two weeks completely lost on the Mediterranean Sea, they hear the waves breaking in the distance at night. They take a depth reading and find it's 100 feet or so (15 fathoms). They drop all four anchors and wait for morning. When morning came, they couldn't recognize the land, but they saw a bay and decided to make a break for it. They actually cut away the anchors and made for the bay. Then they struck a place 'where two seas met' and were stuck still a good distance from shore. What do you think this means? Where two seas met? Maybe it was a sand bank where the water from the bay met the water of the sea?
