Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:1 - Now when they had traveled through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Jews.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:2 - And according to Paul’s custom, he went to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures,

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:3 - [fn]explaining and [fn]giving evidence that the [fn]Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, “This Jesus whom I am proclaiming to you is the [fn]Christ.”

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:4 - And some of them were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, [fn]along with a large number of the God-fearing Greeks and [fn]a number of the leading women.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:5 - But the Jews, becoming jealous and taking along some wicked men from the market place, formed a mob and set the city in an uproar; and attacking the house of Jason, they were seeking to bring them out to the people.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:6 - When they did not find them, they began dragging Jason and some brethren before the city authorities, shouting, “These men who have upset [fn]the world have come here also;

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:7 - [fn]and Jason has welcomed them, and they all act contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, Jesus.”

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:8 - They stirred up the crowd and the city authorities who heard these things.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:9 - And when they had received a [fn]pledge from Jason and the others, they released them.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:10 - The brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea, [fn]and when they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:11 - Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, [fn]for they received the word with [fn]great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:12 - Therefore many of them believed, [fn]along with a number of prominent Greek women and men.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:13 - But when the Jews of Thessalonica found out that the word of God had been proclaimed by Paul in Berea also, they came there as well, agitating and stirring up the crowds.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:14 - Then immediately the brethren sent Paul out to go as far as the sea; and Silas and Timothy remained there.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:15 - Now those who escorted Paul brought him as far as Athens; and receiving a command for Silas and Timothy to come to him as soon as possible, they left.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:16 - Now while Paul was waiting for them at Athens, his spirit was being provoked within him as he was observing the city full of idols.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:17 - So he was reasoning in the synagogue with the Jews and the God-fearing Gentiles, and in the market place every day with those who happened to be present.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:18 - And also some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers were [fn]conversing with him. Some were saying, “What would this [fn]idle babbler wish to say?” Others, “He seems to be a proclaimer of strange deities,”—because he was preaching Jesus and the resurrection.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:19 - And they took him and brought him [fn]to the [fn]Areopagus, saying, “May we know what this new teaching is [fn]which you are proclaiming?

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:20 - “For you are bringing some strange things to our ears; so we want to know what these things mean.”

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:21 - (Now all the Athenians and the strangers visiting there used to spend their time in nothing other than telling or hearing something new.)

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:22 - So Paul stood in the midst of the [fn]Areopagus and said, “Men of Athens, I observe that you are very religious in all respects.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:23 - “For while I was passing through and examining the objects of your worship, I also found an altar with this inscription, ‘TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.’ Therefore what you worship in ignorance, this I proclaim to you.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:24 - “The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands;

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:25 - nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things;

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:26 - and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation,

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:27 - that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:28 - for in Him we live and move and [fn]exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:29 - “Being then the children of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:30 - “Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent,

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:31 - because He has fixed a day in which He will judge [fn]the world in righteousness [fn]through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men [fn]by raising Him from the dead.”

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:32 - Now when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some began to sneer, but others said, “We shall hear you [fn]again concerning this.”

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:33 - So Paul went out of their midst.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 17:34 - But some men joined him and believed, among whom also were Dionysius the Areopagite and a woman named Damaris and others with them.
