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. We also talk about why the Bereans were more noble than the Thessalonians and Paul’s message on Mars Hill in Athens.
THE BALANCE between grace and Law is the focus of this week’s New Testament study. We discuss the Council of Jerusalem, a gathering of the apostles in A.D. 49 to settle the question of whether Gentile converts were required to be circumcised and keep the Law to be saved.
