20:1 departed for Macedonia. Paul went up the coast of Asia Minor from Ephesus, either by road or by ship, probably as far as Troas and then by ship to Macedonia (cf. 16:8–10) and Philippi (cf. 16:11–40), visiting groups of believers as he went. While in Macedonia, Paul may have extended his ministry as far as Illyricum (modern Albania; Rom. 15:19).
