PAUL’S SECOND missionary journey takes him through Corinth and Ephesus, where Paul’s preaching triggers a riot. Apparently his preaching was drawing people away from the patron goddess of the city, Artemis (the Greek version of the Roman goddess Diana).
WE CONTINUE our study of Paul’s Second Missionary Journey. This week, we discuss the run-in with the citizens of Thessalonica and why they were upset by the gospel. Then we turn to Paul’s letters to the church at Thessalonica and the prophecies he shares of the Lord’s return.
THE BALANCE between grace and Law is the focus of this week’s New Testament study. We discuss the Council of Jerusalem, and then we read Paul’s letter to the Galatians, who had apparently come under the influence of Judaizers.
