Acts 11:28 Which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.

Acts 18:2 Because Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome

Emperor Claudius - Letter to the Alexandrians
"I explicitly order the Jews not to agitate for more privileges than they formerly possessed, and not in the future to send out a separate embassy as though they lived in a separate city (a thing unprecedented), and not to force their way into gymnasiarchic or cosmetic games, while enjoying their own privileges and sharing a great abundance of advantages in a city not their own, and not to bring in or admit Jews who come down the river from Egypt or from Syria, a proceeding which will compel me to conceive serious suspicions. Otherwise I will by all means take vengeance on them as fomenters of which is a general plague infecting the whole world"

The Gallio - Delphi Inscription

Claudius and Gallio are both listed on this inscription and both of them are mentioned in the New Testament.

"Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, Highest Priest, invested with tribunician authority

Gallio, my friend and proconsul recently reported to me; and being desirous that Delphi."

The full transcription

The inscription is written in Greek and is a copy of a decree of the Roman Emperor Claudius (A.D. 41–54) who commanded L. Iunius Gallio, the governor, to assist in settling additional elite persons in Delphi—in an effort to revitalize it.

The inscription dates between April and July A.D., 52, and from it, it can be deduced that Gallio was the proconsul of Achaia in the previous year. Thus Paul’s eighteenth month stay in Corinth (Acts 18:1–18) included the year 51. This inscription is critical in helping to establish the Chronology of Paul as presented in the book of Acts.
