This week we discussed a couple phases of Paul’s ministry in the thriving metropolis of Corinth. He was finally reunited with Silas and Timothy, his ministry partners who stayed in Berea when he left for Athens.
By reading passages from Paul’s letters to the churches at Thessalonica, Philippi, and Corinth, we were able to piece together a picture of how he conducted himself there. We also learned what a big deal it was for Paul when Silas and Timothy arrived with support from the churches they had planted.
In this passage, we also saw a shift in Paul’s priorities. Instead of primarily sharing the gospel with the Jews and “God-Fearers,” he determined to focus his evangelistic efforts on the Gentile population. He continued to share with everyone, but his focus definitely shifted.
