Metaphysical meaning of Adramyttium (mbd)
Adramyttium, ad-ra-myt'-t;-um (Gk.) --court of death.
When Paul appealed to Caesar (who symbolizes the tyrannical rule of the personal will through the reason, unmodified by spiritual love, mercy, and justice), he was taken to Rome, the head, or center from which the will rules. In being taken to Rome, Paul embarked in a ship of Adramyttium. This means that when we, under stress because of the condemnation of the Jews (our old fixed religious ideas), appeal to the outer personal will for protection instead of fully trusting in Spirit, the word of Truth in us (which Paul represents here) is subjected to the judgments of the unawakened intellect as well as to the personal sense man (Caesar).
