A. M. 4050. A.D. 46. Antioch
Then some Jews came from Antioch and Iconium, and when they had won over the crowds and stoned Paul, they dragged him out of the city, thinking he was dead.
After they had evangelized that town and made many disciples, they returned to Lystra, to Iconium, and to Antioch,
strengthening the hearts of the disciples by encouraging them to continue in the faith, and by telling them, "It is necessary to pass through many troubles on our way into the kingdom of God."
When they had appointed elders in every church and prayed with fasting, they committed them to the Lord in whom they had believed.
Then they passed through Pisidia and came to Pamphylia.
Arriving in Salamis, they proclaimed God's message in the Jewish synagogues. They also had John as their assistant.
On the Sabbath day we went outside the city gate by the river, where we thought there was a place of prayer. We sat down and spoke to the women gathered there.
As usual, Paul went to them, and on three Sabbath days reasoned with them from the Scriptures,
He reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath and tried to persuade both Jews and Greeks.
Then he entered the synagogue and spoke boldly over a period of three months, engaging in discussion and trying to persuade them about the things related to the kingdom of God.
