Paul in Corinth
18
1 Paul left Athens and went to Corinth,
18 Chapter recording
List of all recordings of KJV
1 After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth;
2 where he met Aquila, a Jewish man from Pontus. Not long before this, Aquila had come from Italy with his wife Priscilla, because Emperor Claudius had ordered the Jewish people to leave Rome.
q 18.2 Emperor Claudius had ordered all the Jewish people to leave Rome: Probably A.D. 49, though it may have been A.D. 41.
Paul went to see Aquila and Priscilla
2 And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them.
3 and found out that they were tent makers. Paul was a tent maker too. So he stayed with them, and they worked together. 3 And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers.
4 Every Sabbath, Paul went to the Jewish meeting place. He spoke to Jews and Gentiles
r 18.4 Gentiles: Here the word is “Greeks.” But see the note at 14.1.
and tried to win them over.
4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.
5 But after Silas and Timothy came from Macedonia, he spent all his time preaching to the Jews about Jesus the Messiah. 5 And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus was Christ.
was Christ: or, is the Christ
6 Finally, they turned against him and insulted him. So he shook the dust from his clothes
s 18.6 shook the dust from his clothes: This means the same as shaking dust from the feet (see the note at 13.51).
and told them, “Whatever happens to you will be your own fault! I am not to blame. From now on I am going to preach to the Gentiles.”
6 And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean: from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles.
7 Paul then moved into the house of a man named Titius Justus, who worshiped God and lived next door to the Jewish meeting place.
7 And he departed thence, and entered into a certain man's house, named Justus, one that worshipped God, whose house joined hard to the synagogue.
8 Crispus was the leader of the meeting place. He and everyone in his family put their faith in the Lord. Many others in Corinth also heard the message, and all the people who had faith in the Lord were baptized. 8 And Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized.
9 One night, Paul had a vision, and in it the Lord said, “Don't be afraid to keep on preaching. Don't stop!
9 Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:
10 I am with you, and you won't be harmed. Many people in this city belong to me.” 10 For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.
11 Paul stayed on in Corinth for a year and a half, teaching God's message to the people. 11 And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.
continued there: Gr. sat there
12 While Gallio was governor of Achaia, some of the Jewish leaders got together and grabbed Paul. They brought him into court
12 And when Gallio was the deputy of Achaia, the Jews made insurrection with one accord against Paul, and brought him to the judgment seat,
13 and said, “This man is trying to make our people worship God in a way that is against our Law!” 13 Saying, This fellow persuadeth men to worship God contrary to the law.
14 Even before Paul could speak, Gallio said, “If you were charging this man with a crime or some other wrong, I would have to listen to you.
14 And when Paul was now about to open his mouth, Gallio said unto the Jews, If it were a matter of wrong or wicked lewdness, O ye Jews, reason would that I should bear with you:
15 But since this concerns only words, names, and your own law, you will have to take care of it. I refuse to judge such matters.” 15 But if it be a question of words and names, and of your law, look ye to it; for I will be no judge of such matters.
16 Then he sent them out of the court. 16 And he drave them from the judgment seat.
17 The crowd grabbed Sosthenes, the Jewish leader, and beat him up in front of the court. But none of this mattered to Gallio. 17 Then all the Greeks took Sosthenes, the chief ruler of the synagogue, and beat him before the judgment seat. And Gallio cared for none of those things.
Paul Returns to Antioch in Syria
18 After Paul had stayed for a while with the Lord's followers in Corinth, he told them good-by and sailed on to Syria with Aquila and Priscilla. But before he left, he had his head shaved
t 18.18 he had his head shaved: Paul had promised to be a “Nazirite” for a while. This meant that for the time of the promise, he could not cut his hair or drink wine. When the time was over, he would have to cut his hair and offer a sacrifice to God.
at Cenchreae because he had made a promise to God.
18.18 Nu 6.18.
18 And Paul after this tarried there yet a good while, and then took his leave of the brethren, and sailed thence into Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila; having shorn his head in Cenchrea: for he had a vow.
19 The three of them arrived in Ephesus, where Paul left Priscilla and Aquila. He then went into the Jewish meeting place to talk with the people there.
19 And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.
20 They asked him to stay longer, but he refused. 20 When they desired him to tarry longer time with them, he consented not;
21 He told them good-by and said, “If God lets me, I will come back.” 21 But bade them farewell, saying, I must by all means keep this feast that cometh in Jerusalem: but I will return again unto you, if God will. And he sailed from Ephesus.
22 Paul sailed to Caesarea, where he greeted the church. Then he went on to Antioch.
22 And when he had landed at Caesarea, and gone up, and saluted the church, he went down to Antioch.
23 After staying there for a while, he left and visited several places in Galatia and Phrygia. He helped the followers there to become stronger in their faith. 23 And after he had spent some time there, he departed, and went over all the country of Galatia and Phrygia in order, strengthening all the disciples.
Apollos in Ephesus
24 A Jewish man named Apollos came to Ephesus. Apollos had been born in the city of Alexandria. He was a very good speaker and knew a lot about the Scriptures.
24 And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus.
25 He also knew much about the Lord's Way,
u 18.25 the Lord's Way: See the note at 9.2.
and he spoke about it with great excitement. What he taught about Jesus was right, but all he knew was John's message about baptism.
25 This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John.
26 Apollos started speaking bravely in the Jewish meeting place. But when Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him to their home and helped him understand God's Way even better.
26 And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.
27 Apollos decided to travel through Achaia. So the Lord's followers wrote letters, encouraging the followers there to welcome him. After Apollos arrived in Achaia, he was a great help to everyone who had put their faith in the Lord Jesus because of God's kindness.
27 And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him: who, when he was come, helped them much which had believed through grace:
28 He got into fierce arguments with the Jewish people, and in public he used the Scriptures to prove that Jesus is the Messiah. 28 For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publickly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.
Christ: or, is the Christ
