The apostle Paul’s 2nd Journey with fellow travellers, Silas and Timothy, continues.
The next stop was Thessalonica, a Grecian city with enough Jewish residents to warrant a Synagogue. You may have noticed that although Paul was keen to spread the gospel to the gentiles, he usually began by contacting the Jewish community.
Having been thrown out of Antioch in Pisidia, Paul and Barnabas went to Iconium. They preached in the synagogue. Verse 1 records that Jews, gentiles and Greeks believed but the Jews stirred up the gentiles and the apostles fled to Lystra and Derbe.View Discussion
