journeyings
Acts 9:23
After many days had passed, the Jews conspired to kill him,
Acts 9:26-30
26
When he arrived in Jerusalem, he tried to associate with the disciples, but they were all afraid of him, since they did not believe he was a disciple.
27
Barnabas, however, took him and brought him to the apostles and explained to them how, on the road, Saul had seen the Lord, and that He had talked to him, and how in Damascus he had spoken boldly in the name of Jesus.
28
Saul was coming and going with them in Jerusalem, speaking boldly in the name of the Lord.
29
He conversed and debated with the Hellenistic Jews, but they attempted to kill him.
30
When the brothers found out, they took him down to Caesarea and sent him off to Tarsus.
Acts 11:25
Then he went to Tarsus to search for Saul,
Acts 11:26
and when he found him he brought him to Antioch. For a whole year they met with the church and taught large numbers, and the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.
Acts 13:1-14
1
In the local church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius the Cyrenian, Manaen, a close friend of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
2
As they were ministering to the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, "Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work that I have called them to."
3
Then, after they had fasted, prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them off.
4
Being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they came down to Seleucia, and from there they sailed to Cyprus.
5
Arriving in Salamis, they proclaimed God's message in the Jewish synagogues. They also had John as their assistant.
6
When they had gone through the whole island as far as Paphos, they came across a sorcerer, a Jewish false prophet named Bar-Jesus.
7
He was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, an intelligent man. This man summoned Barnabas and Saul and desired to hear God's message.
8
But Elymas, the sorcerer, which is how his name is translated, opposed them and tried to turn the proconsul away from the faith.
9
Then Saul-- also called Paul-- filled with the Holy Spirit, stared straight at the sorcerer
10
and said, "You son of the Devil, full of all deceit and all fraud, enemy of all righteousness! Won't you ever stop perverting the straight paths of the Lord?
11
Now, look! The Lord's hand is against you: you are going to be blind, and will not see the sun for a time." Suddenly a mist and darkness fell on him, and he went around seeking someone to lead him by the hand.
12
Then the proconsul, seeing what happened, believed and was astonished at the teaching about the Lord.
13
Paul and his companions set sail from Paphos and came to Perga in Pamphylia. John, however, left them and went back to Jerusalem.
14
They continued their journey from Perga and reached Antioch in Pisidia. On the Sabbath day they went into the synagogue and sat down.
Acts 15:2-4
2
But after Paul and Barnabas had engaged them in serious argument and debate, they arranged for Paul and Barnabas and some others of them to go up to the apostles and elders in Jerusalem concerning this controversy.
3
When they had been sent on their way by the church, they passed through both Phoenicia and Samaria, explaining in detail the conversion of the Gentiles, and they created great joy among all the brothers.
4
When they arrived at Jerusalem, they were welcomed by the church, the apostles, and the elders, and they reported all that God had done with them.
Acts 15:40-4
Acts 15:41-4
Acts 16:1-18
1
Then he went on to Derbe and Lystra, where there was a disciple named Timothy, the son of a believing Jewish woman, but his father was a Greek.
2
The brothers at Lystra and Iconium spoke highly of him.
3
Paul wanted Timothy to go with him, so he took him and circumcised him because of the Jews who were in those places, since they all knew that his father was a Greek.
4
As they traveled through the towns, they delivered to them the decisions reached by the apostles and elders at Jerusalem.
5
So the churches were strengthened in the faith and were increased in number daily.
6
They went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia and were prevented by the Holy Spirit from speaking the message in the province of Asia.
7
When they came to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them.
8
So, bypassing Mysia, they came down to Troas.
9
During the night a vision appeared to Paul: a Macedonian man was standing and pleading with him, "Cross over to Macedonia and help us!"
10
After he had seen the vision, we immediately made efforts to set out for Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to evangelize them.
11
Then, setting sail from Troas, we ran a straight course to Samothrace, the next day to Neapolis,
12
and from there to Philippi, a Roman colony, which is a leading city of that district of Macedonia. We stayed in that city for a number of days.
13
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.
14
A woman named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth from the city of Thyatira, who worshiped God, was listening. The Lord opened her heart to pay attention to what was spoken by Paul.
15
After she and her household were baptized, she urged us, "If you consider me a believer in the Lord, come and stay at my house." And she persuaded us.
16
Once, as we were on our way to prayer, a slave girl met us who had a spirit of prediction and made a large profit for her owners by fortune-telling.
17
As she followed Paul and us she cried out, "These men are the slaves of the Most High God, who are proclaiming to you the way of salvation."
18
And she did this for many days. But Paul was greatly aggravated, and turning to the spirit, said, "I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her!" And it came out right away.
Acts 18:18-23
18
So Paul, having stayed on for many days, said good-bye to the brothers and sailed away to Syria. Priscilla and Aquila were with him. He shaved his head at Cenchreae, because he had taken a vow.
19
When they reached Ephesus he left them there, but he himself entered the synagogue and engaged in discussion with the Jews.
20
And though they asked him to stay for a longer time, he declined,
21
but said good-bye and stated, "I'll come back to you again, if God wills." Then he set sail from Ephesus.
22
On landing at Caesarea, he went up and greeted the church, and went down to Antioch.
23
He set out, traveling through one place after another in the Galatian territory and Phrygia, strengthening all the disciples.
Acts 19:1
While Apollos was in Corinth, Paul traveled through the interior regions and came to Ephesus. He found some disciples
Acts 20:1-6
1
After the uproar was over, Paul sent for the disciples, encouraged them, and after saying good-bye, departed to go to Macedonia.
2
And when he had passed through those areas and exhorted them at length, he came to Greece
3
and stayed three months. When he was about to set sail for Syria, a plot was devised against him by the Jews, so a decision was made to go back through Macedonia.
4
He was accompanied by Sopater, son of Pyrrhus, from Beroea, Aristarchus and Secundus from Thessalonica, Gaius from Derbe, Timothy, and Tychicus and Trophimus from Asia.
5
These men went on ahead and waited for us in Troas,
6
but we sailed away from Philippi after the days of Unleavened Bread. In five days we reached them at Troas, where we spent seven days.
Romans 15:19
by the power of miraculous signs and wonders, and by the power of God's Spirit. As a result, I have fully proclaimed the good news about the Messiah from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum.
Romans 15:24-28
24
whenever I travel to Spain. For I do hope to see you when I pass through, and to be sent on my way there by you, once I have first enjoyed your company for a while.
25
Now, however, I am traveling to Jerusalem to serve the saints;
26
for Macedonia and Achaia were pleased to make a contribution to the poor among the saints in Jerusalem.
27
Yes, they were pleased, and they are indebted to them. For if the Gentiles have shared in their spiritual benefits, then they are obligated to minister to Jews in material needs.
28
So when I have finished this and safely delivered the funds to them, I will go by way of you to Spain.
Galatians 1:17-21
17
I did not go up to Jerusalem to those who had become apostles before me; instead I went to Arabia and came back to Damascus.
18
Then after three years I did go up to Jerusalem to get to know Cephas, and I stayed with him 15 days.
19
But I didn't see any of the other apostles except James, the Lord's brother.
20
Now in what I write to you, I'm not lying. God is my witness.
21
Afterwards, I went to the regions of Syria and Cilicia.
in perils by mine
Acts 9:23-25
23
After many days had passed, the Jews conspired to kill him,
24
but their plot became known to Saul. So they were watching the gates day and night intending to kill him,
25
but his disciples took him by night and lowered him in a large basket through [an opening in] the wall.
Acts 9:29-25
Acts 13:50
But the Jews incited the religious women of high standing and the leading men of the city. They stirred up persecution against Paul and Barnabas and expelled them from their district.
Acts 20:3
and stayed three months. When he was about to set sail for Syria, a plot was devised against him by the Jews, so a decision was made to go back through Macedonia.
Acts 20:19
serving the Lord with all humility, with tears, and with the trials that came to me through the plots of the Jews--
Acts 21:28-31
28
shouting, "Men of Israel, help! This is the man who teaches everyone everywhere against our people, our law, and this place. What's more, he also brought Greeks into the temple and has profaned this holy place."
29
For they had previously seen Trophimus the Ephesian in the city with him, and they supposed that Paul had brought him into the temple complex.
30
The whole city was stirred up, and the people rushed together. They seized Paul, dragged him out of the temple complex, and at once the gates were shut.
31
As they were trying to kill him, word went up to the commander of the regiment that all Jerusalem was in chaos.
Acts 23:12-22
12
When it was day, the Jews formed a conspiracy and bound themselves under a curse: neither to eat nor to drink until they had killed Paul.
13
There were more than 40 who had formed this plot.
14
These men went to the chief priests and elders and said, "We have bound ourselves under a solemn curse that we won't eat anything until we have killed Paul.
15
So now you, along with the Sanhedrin, make a request to the commander that he bring him down to you as if you were going to investigate his case more thoroughly. However, before he gets near, we are ready to kill him."
16
But the son of Paul's sister, hearing about their ambush, came and entered the barracks and reported it to Paul.
17
Then Paul called one of the centurions and said, "Take this young man to the commander, because he has something to report to him."
18
So he took him, brought him to the commander, and said, "The prisoner Paul called me and asked me to bring this young man to you, because he has something to tell you."
19
Then the commander took him by the hand, led him aside, and inquired privately, "What is it you have to report to me?"
20
"The Jews," he said, "have agreed to ask you to bring Paul down to the Sanhedrin tomorrow, as though they are going to hold a somewhat more careful inquiry about him.
21
Don't let them persuade you, because there are more than 40 of them arranging to ambush him, men who have bound themselves under a curse not to eat or drink until they kill him. Now they are ready, waiting for a commitment from you."
22
So the commander dismissed the young man and instructed him, "Don't tell anyone that you have informed me about this."
Acts 25:3
asking him to do them a favor against Paul, that he might summon him to Jerusalem. They were preparing an ambush along the road to kill him.
Acts 28:10
So they heaped many honors on us, and when we sailed, they gave us what we needed.
Acts 28:11
After three months we set sail in an Alexandrian ship that had wintered at the island, with the Twin Brothers as its figurehead.
1 Thessalonians 2:15
They killed both the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and persecuted us; they displease God, and are hostile to everyone,
1 Thessalonians 2:16
hindering us from speaking to the Gentiles so that they may be saved. As a result, they are always adding to the number of their sins, and wrath has overtaken them completely.
in perils by the
2 Corinthians 1:8-10
8
For we don't want you to be unaware, brothers, of our affliction that took place in the province of Asia: we were completely overwhelmed-- beyond our strength-- so that we even despaired of life.
9
However, we personally had a death sentence within ourselves so that we would not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead.
10
He has delivered us from such a terrible death, and He will deliver us; we have placed our hope in Him that He will deliver us again.
Acts 14:5
When an attempt was made by both the Gentiles and Jews, with their rulers, to assault and stone them,
Acts 14:19
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.
Acts 16:19-24
19
When her owners saw that their hope of profit was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to the authorities.
20
And bringing them before the chief magistrates, they said, "These men are seriously disturbing our city. They are Jews,
21
and are promoting customs that are not legal for us as Romans to adopt or practice."
22
Then the mob joined in the attack against them, and the chief magistrates stripped off their clothes and ordered them to be beaten with rods.
23
After they had inflicted many blows on them, they threw them in jail, ordering the jailer to keep them securely guarded.
24
Receiving such an order, he put them into the inner prison and secured their feet in the stocks.
Acts 19:23-41
23
During that time there was a major disturbance about the Way.
24
For a person named Demetrius, a silversmith who made silver shrines of Artemis, provided a great deal of business for the craftsmen.
25
When he had assembled them, as well as the workers engaged in this type of business, he said: "Men, you know that our prosperity is derived from this business.
26
You both see and hear that not only in Ephesus, but in almost the whole province of Asia, this man Paul has persuaded and misled a considerable number of people by saying that gods made by hand are not gods!
27
So not only do we run a risk that our business may be discredited, but also that the temple of the great goddess Artemis may be despised and her magnificence come to the verge of ruin-- the very one whom the whole province of Asia and the world adore."
28
When they had heard this, they were filled with rage and began to cry out, "Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!"
29
So the city was filled with confusion; and they rushed all together into the amphitheater, dragging along Gaius and Aristarchus, Macedonians who were Paul's traveling companions.
30
Though Paul wanted to go in before the people, the disciples did not let him.
31
Even some of the provincial officials of Asia, who were his friends, sent word to him, pleading with him not to take a chance by going into the amphitheater.
32
Meanwhile, some were shouting one thing and some another, because the assembly was in confusion, and most of them did not know why they had come together.
33
Then some of the crowd gave Alexander advice when the Jews pushed him to the front. So motioning with his hand, Alexander wanted to make his defense to the people.
34
But when they recognized that he was a Jew, a united cry went up from all of them for about two hours: "Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!"
35
However, when the city clerk had calmed the crowd down, he said, "Men of Ephesus! What man is there who doesn't know that the city of the Ephesians is the temple guardian of the great Artemis, and of the image that fell from heaven?
36
Therefore, since these things are undeniable, you must keep calm and not do anything rash.
37
For you have brought these men here who are not temple robbers or blasphemers of our goddess.
38
So if Demetrius and the craftsmen who are with him have a case against anyone, the courts are in session, and there are proconsuls. Let them bring charges against one another.
39
But if you want something else, it must be decided in a legal assembly.
40
In fact, we run a risk of being charged with rioting for what happened today, since there is no justification that we can give as a reason for this disorderly gathering."
41
After saying this, he dismissed the assembly.
1 Corinthians 15:32
If I fought wild animals in Ephesus with only human hope, what good does that do me? If the dead are not raised, Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.

But the Jews became jealous, and when they had brought together some scoundrels from the marketplace and formed a mob, they set the city in an uproar. Attacking Jason's house, they searched for them to bring them out to the public assembly.
