Acts Chapter 18...

Paul In Corinth

  • Paul leaves Athens, heads over to Corinth, and meets a Jewish couple named Aquila and Priscilla who have just been kicked out of Rome.
  • The couple happens to be tentmakers (like Paul), so the three of them work together making tents and enjoying the sights in Corinth.
  • Every time the Sabbath rolls around, Paul heads over to the synagogue to start telling everyone about Jesus. The guy does not stop.
  • In the meantime, Silas and Timothy meet up with him from Macedonia.
  • Paul isn't making any headway with the Corinthian Jews, so he decides to go talk to the Gentiles in town.
  • Paul has better luck among the Gentiles and manages to convert lots of people.
  • One night, God speaks to Paul in a vision and tells him not to worry. Corinth is a safe place for him because there are lots of sympathetic Christians hanging around.
  • God is right. Corinth is so safe that Paul stays there for a year and a half.
  • Later, some of the Jews drag Paul off to the Roman governor, Gallio.
  • But Gallio doesn't think much of their concerns. He basically tells them to figure it out themselves because the Christians aren't breaking any Roman laws.
