The New King James Version

Acts 17:1–15

Preaching Christ at Thessalonica

17 Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to aThessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Jews. Then Paul, as his custom was, bwent in to them, and for three Sabbaths creasoned with them from the Scriptures, explaining and demonstrating dthat the Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, “This Jesus whom I preach to you is the Christ.” eAnd some of them were persuaded; and a great multitude of the devout Greeks, and not a few of the leading women, joined Paul and fSilas.

Assault on Jason’s House

But the Jews 1who were not persuaded, 2becoming genvious, took some of the evil men from the marketplace, and gathering a mob, set all the city in an uproar and attacked the house of hJason, and sought to bring them out to the people. But when they did not find them, they dragged Jason and some brethren to the rulers of the city, crying out, i“These who have turned the world upside down have come here too. Jason has 3harbored them, and these are all acting contrary to the decrees of Caesar, jsaying there is another king—Jesus.” And they troubled the crowd and the rulers of the city when they heard these things. So when they had taken security from Jason and the rest, they let them go.

Ministering at Berea

10 Then kthe brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea. When they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 These were more 4fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and lsearched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so. 12 Therefore many of them believed, and also not a few of the Greeks, prominent women as well as men. 13 But when the Jews from Thessalonica learned that the word of God was preached by Paul at Berea, they came there also and stirred up the crowds. 14 mThen immediately the brethren sent Paul away, to go to the sea; but both Silas and Timothy remained there. 15 So those who conducted Paul brought him to Athens; and nreceiving a command for Silas and Timothy to come to him with all speed, they departed.
