Paul’s Journeys

Introduction

Probably no individual, except the Son of God Himself, has more influenced the cause of Christ than the Apostle Paul. It was he who firmly planted the church among the Gentiles. It was he who wrote half the books of the New Testament. And it is he who is the predominant figure in chapters 8 to 28 of Acts. These journeys were filled with highs and lows.


After the stoning of Stephen, a great persecution scattered the Jerusalem church throughout Judea and Samaria. This was a blessing in disguise since those scattered went everywhere preaching the word of God. Philip the evangelist converted many in the city of Samaria, among them a magician named Simon. Philip was then led by the Spirit of God to a desert road between Jerusalem and Gaza. Here he met and converted a eunuch who as treasurer to the queen of Ethiopia. Doubtless the man returned home to preach to his people. Paul’s Missionary Journeys

The Apostle Paul’s missionary journeys reveal a lot about the early church and its struggle to grow and advance. We know that the apostles continually encountered legalistic Jews, an intensely pagan culture, and an oppressive Roman government. A Deeper Look At Paul’s Missionary Journeys

How did Paul come to have contact with Corinth in the first place?

We have to say that it didn’t begin very well! Perhaps it was because, whilst the first journey was undertaken at the direction of the Holy Spirit, the 2nd was the suggestion of Barnabas. They didn’t wait for the leading of the Spirit. Paul’s Trip To Corinth
