I understand that Philippians was one of Paul's prison letters and If you read Luke's account in Acts 28:16-31 it will shed a little more light on the subject. When Paul arrived in Rome v. 16 states he wasn't kept with the regular prisoners but allowed to live alone yet constantly chained to a soldier or guard. One theologian I study after suggests that he actually had living quarters in the Roman palace court yard! He must have had a considerable amount of liberty because after 3 days (v. 17) he called the chief of the Jews together to his location. As Apostle to the Gentiles one can only imagine the soldiers and servants this dear saint of God witnessed to, telling them about his experience on the road to Damascus and the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. I believe the saints of Cesar's household were the Romans who came to a saving knowledge of the Lord through Paul's ministry. No doubt, The Lord put Paul there for a purpose, to preach and write the Word of God.
