Insights on Today's Reading
Acts 17 - Paul went to Thessalonica and basically ministered there for just three weeks, verse 2. He established a local church before being forced to leave because of persecution. He went to Berea where the believers there "...searched the Scriptures daily" verse 11, to see if Paul's teaching was in harmony with the Scriptures. Later, Paul went to Athens and found the city given over to worship of idols. He noticed one alter dedicated to "...the unknown God..." Paul used this as a means to preach about the true God that these Athenians had never known. The people listened to him until he spoke about the resurrection of the dead. Some mocked, verse 32, but others believed.
Acts 18:1-18 - Paul then went to Corinth and ministered there for about a year and a half, verse 11. While he was there God appeared to him in a vision and assured Paul of His presence and that his work would be fruitful. Paul and his companions faced a lot of persecution wherever they went, verse 17.
