Acts 17:1-18:23

Paul came to Thessalonica, with Silas his buddy in tow.
Three weeks he taught in the Synagogue. That was his custom, you know.

A multitude chose to believe, and many of those were Greek.
But the Jews who were unbelieving, didn't want Paul and Silas to speak.

They stirred up the cities rulers, so the church sent Paul by night.
Paul and Silas came to Berea, where they taught with power and might.

Paul loved these noble Bereans. The Savior he taught them to know.
He was thrilled as they listened they checked out the scriptures to see if these things be so.

But the Jews at Thessalonica, got word of the Berean's faith.
They came to Berea to stir up that town thinking they would put Paul in his place.

The Bereans then set Paul to Athens. At Athens he came to Mars Hill.
There were idols to every imaginable god. Paul beheld it and soon got his fill.

He came to an altar with an inscription that read, to the God that we don't yet know.
He's the one that I speak of, Paul boldly declared. Listen closely and I'll tell you so.

After this Paul came unto Corinth. With Aquila and Priscilla he stayed.
When he taught in the temple that Jesus was Christ the Jews again disobeyed.

Paul said of these Jews, I've now had enough. Henceforth to the Gentiles I go.
For a year and six month He taught there in Corinth. Then in Syria, God's seed Paul did sow.

But he bid them farewell as he traveled abroad.
Antioch and Galatia, he taught them of God.
