Glad you could return for more Daily Bread Bible Study of
The Acts of the Apostles. We've been getting acquainted with the soul of
Paul in our studies lately, and we've come to find that he's really quite
the character, and definitely an important part of the roots of the
Christian church. Let's go see what happened to him next as he traveled
through Macedonia (Greece). He also had a very close relationship with the
When Paul left Athens, he went to Corinth, (still in Greece, but in a region
called Achaia) and he met a Jewish man named Aquila, who was born in Pontus
(now northern Turkey), and had recently come to Corinth from Italy, with his
wife Priscilla, (because Caesar had
commanded that all Jewish people leave Rome). Paul was a tent-maker by trade,
and he stayed with Aquila and Priscilla because they had the same
occupation, so they worked together.
Every Sabbath, Paul went to the synagogue and shared the word of God,
persuading the Jewish people and the Greeks. When Silas and Timotheus
arrived from Macedonia, Paul was touched in the spirit, an testified to the
Jewish people that Jesus is the Christ. They spoke against Paul and
blasphemed, so he shook his clothes and said to them, Your blood be upon
your own heads; I am clean; from now on I will go to the Gentiles.

Paul left there and went into a man's house, named Justus, who worshipped
God and whose family was frequently at the synagogue. The chief ruler of the
synagogue, named Crispus, believed in the Lord, with all his family, and
many of the Corinthians who heard, believed and were baptized.
Then the Lord spoke to Paul one night by a vision,
Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy
For I am with thee, and no man shall set on
thee to hurt thee:
for I have much people in this city.
And Paul did just that. (When you stop and think about it, even with devotion as
deep as Paul's, having been stoned close to death, probably makes one just a
tiny bit hesitant at times to go out and convince people such as the Jewish
people who were so set in their ways and pride prevented them from hearing.) Paul adhered to
the be not afraid Bible verse message.
Paul stayed in Corinth for 1½ years, teaching the Word of God to them. Then
when Gallio was the deputy of Achaia, the Jewish people there, united and
rebelled against Paul, and brought him to the judgment seat, saying, this
fellow persuades men to worship God contrary to the law. When Paul was about
to speak, Gallio said to the Jews, If it were a matter of wrong or wicked
lewdness, O you Jews, it would make sense for me to bear with you: But if
it's an argument of words and names, and of your law, you take care of it;
I'll be no judge of such matters. And he drove them out of the court.

Then all the Greeks took Sosthenes, the chief ruler of the synagogue, and
beat him before the judgment seat, and Gallio paid no attention. (There's
that protection that Jesus told Paul of in the vision.) After that, Paul
stayed there for a good while still, and then left the brethren and sailed
from there into Syria, and he took Aquila and Priscilla with him. He shaved
his head in Cenchrea, because he made a vow (see Daily Bread, Numbers,
The Vow of the
When he came to Ephesus, he went alone into the synagogue and reasoned with
the Jewish people. Here's an emotion of Paul's that we can all identify
with. You know when there's something that you know for a fact, and even
though you prove it, people still won't believe you? That's what Paul was
probably feeling with the Jewish people. And even though in Corinth he shook
his clothes and said he'd go to the Gentiles from now on, he just couldn't
just give up on all the Jewish people. That's because his love for the Lord
was bigger than his pride. How very admirable.
They wanted Paul to stay there longer, but he wouldn't agree to it, but bid
them farewell, saying, I must go to Jerusalem for Pentecost, but I'll come
back to visit you again, if God will.
He sailed from Ephesus, and when he landed at Caesarea,
and had gone up and greeted the church, then he went to Antioch. That
completes Paul's second journey, which was from the years 49-52 A.D. After
he had spent some time there (about a year), Paul began his third journey
and went all over the country of Galatia and Phrygia in order, strengthening
all the disciples in the Churches that he had started.
BE NOT AFRAID BIBLE STUDY ON BE NOT AFRAID SCRIPTURE AND FEAR NOT BIBLE VERSES SUMMARY
Now, back in Ephesus there was a certain Jewish man who came there, named
Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and educated in the
scriptures. This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being
zealous in the spirit, he spoke and taught diligently the things of the
Lord, but understanding only the baptism of John. He started to speak
enthusiastically in the synagogue: and when Aquila and Priscilla heard, they
took him and explained to him the way of God more perfectly.
And when he was prepared to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, urging the
disciples there to welcome him. When he arrived, he greatly helped those who
had believed through Grace. And he strongly refuted the Jewish people
publicly, showing by the scriptures (Old Testament) that Jesus was Christ. (Tell
Me the Story of Jesus)
As you study through the book of Acts, you kinda get a feeling for what kind of
people live in each place that Luke talks about. Later in the New Testament,
Paul writes letters to different places that he visited, to further
encourage, strengthen and admonish the people.
BE NOT AFRAID BIBLE STUDY ON BE NOT AFRAID SCRIPTURE AND FEAR NOT BIBLE VERSES CONCLUSION
Remember, the times were
ancient and people didn't readily have copies of the Gospels to study with
and strengthen them as we do today, and you can sense their appreciation of
Paul's presence because he had such spirit and vitality in bringing the Word
of the Lord to the people.
Come on back again, and join as we continue along with Paul on his third
journey to gain the Gentiles for Christ, right here at Daily Bread.
