Paul's Journeys

Show Summary Details


This chapter traces the journeys taken by Paul, which led to the spread of Christianity into Asia Minor, and through the lands around the Aegean Sea. In his first journey Paul set out in the company of Barnabas from Antioch in Syria. From Seleucia they sailed to Salamis on the island of Cyprus, then travelled overland to Paphos. In his second journey Paul again set out from Antioch, this time with Silas rather than Barnabas. They travelled overland to Derbe and Lystra, where they met Timothy who joined them, and on through Galatian Phrygia and northwestwards through Mysia to the coast at Troas. In his third journey Paul again went from Antioch overland through Galatian Phrygia and journeyed on to Ephesus, establishing the church there, and remaining for some time.
