Acts 16-18

Paul’s2nd Missionary Journey

paul s second journey1
Paul’s Second Journey
  • Acts Chapter 16 begins with Paul deciding to visit the churches from his first journey.
  • It is possible that he and Barnabas may have encountered each other.
  • At this point, Paul has written the book of Galatians.
  • The tone of Galatians is a little harsh. Galatians Chapter 3.

Paul’s Second Journey
  • Once Paul had revisited these churches, he wants to go to Asia.
  • Essentially, he wants to take the gospel to Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and that region.
  • You will notice in Acts 16 that Paul tries a number of different avenues.
  • Finally, he sets out to the West. This decision fundamentally alters Western civilization.

Paul’s Second Journey
  • Europe, at this time, is dominated by tribesmen and various groups following an animistic type of religion.
  • Rome has been expanding through Europe, even as far as England, but its influence is waning.
  • In England, we have yet to have the rise of the Anglos or the Saxons.

Paul’s Second Journey
  • Aside from Roman influence, religion in Europe is very primitive. Culturally, Europe is dominated by various tribal affiliations, including the Franks, what will become the Hessians, and other affiliations.
  • Paul’s journey West will alter Roman history and from there all of Western culture.
paul s second journey5
Paul’s Second Journey
  • Paul visits a number of very famous churches during this visit.
  • By some accounts, he visited as many as 28 separate cities.
  • This journey will take him to Ephesus, Philippi, Rhodes (where the Colossus of Rhodes stood), and Thessalonica.
  • Obviously, these are churches to knew Paul will write many of his greatest letters.

Paul’s Second Journey
  • During this journey, Paul will write several of his letters.
  • In A.D. 52, while on his second journey and staying at Corinth, Paul will write both letters to the Thessalonians.
  • There is some debate as to whether he wrote the book of Ephesians during this journey or during the third journey.

Paul’s Second Journey
  • Key events during this trip include:
    • Meeting Lydia, the seller of purple.
    • The Philippian jailer is converted: Paul and Silas take a beating.
    • Paul goes to Berea, but not Berea Kentucky, and finds faithful men.
    • Silas and Timothy stay behind as Paul and Luke travel on.
    • Paul preaches about the Unknown God

Paul’s Second Journey
  • Key events during this journey include:
    • Acts 18:2-Claudius throws the Jews out of Rome. This is a hard date, and so we know these events are between A.D 51 and A.D. 54.
    • Paul stays in Corinth, and meets Aquila and Priscilla. He will stay here for three or four years.
    • Acts 18:9, one of my favorite verses. Note that the chief ruler of the synagogue converted.
    • Paul gets beaten again. We are up to four.

Paul’s Second Journey
  • Key events in this journey include:
    • The conversion of Apollos.
    • Notice that the conversion of Apollos was part of Aquila and Priscilla’s work, not Paul.
    • This is why Paul addresses the issue so directly in his letters.
    • Apollos becomes quite the disciple, and some people believe he wrote the book of Hebrews.

Paul’s Second Journey
  • Key events in this journey include:
    • Paul brings the baptism of the Holy Spirit to the followers of Apollos.
    • Paul spends two years at the school of Tyrannus
    • Acts 19:19 is of particular significance– the burning of the books of Magic arts.
    • Notice that Paul finally gets to minister in Asia. Causes the stirrer about the goddess Diana.
    • We are paving the way for his third journey, his arrest, and the trial in Rome.

Paul’s Second Journey
  • Memory Verse:
  • First Corinthians 9:22
  • To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all [men], that I might by all means save some
