Bible: Acts 18:1-11

Paul at Corinth

18:1 After this 1  Paul 2  departed from 3  Athens 4  and went to Corinth. 5  18:2 There he 6  found 7  a Jew named Aquila, 8  a native of Pontus, 9  who had recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius 10  had ordered all the Jews to depart from 11  Rome. 12  Paul approached 13  them, 18:3 and because he worked at the same trade, he stayed with them and worked with them 14  (for they were tentmakers 15  by trade). 16  18:4 He addressed 17  both Jews and Greeks in the synagogue 18  every Sabbath, attempting to persuade 19  them.

18:5 Now when Silas and Timothy arrived 20  from Macedonia, 21  Paul became wholly absorbed with proclaiming 22  the word, testifying 23  to the Jews that Jesus was the Christ. 24  18:6 When they opposed him 25  and reviled him, 26  he protested by shaking out his clothes 27  and said to them, “Your blood 28  be on your own heads! I am guiltless! 29  From now on I will go to the Gentiles! 18:7 Then Paul 30  left 31  the synagogue 32  and went to the house of a person named Titius Justus, a Gentile who worshiped God, 33  whose house was next door to the synagogue. 18:8 Crispus, the president of the synagogue, 34  believed in the Lord together with his entire household, and many of the Corinthians who heard about it 35  believed and were baptized. 18:9 The Lord said to Paul by a vision 36  in the night, 37 Do not be afraid, 38  but speak and do not be silent, 18:10 because I am with you, and no one will assault 39  you to harm 40  you, because I have many people in this city.” 18:11 So he stayed there 41  a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them. 42
