9 So when Paul and Silas came before the leaders of the city, they refused to let them go until Jason and his men posted bail.
The Gospel Received in Berea
10 That night the believers sent Paul and Silas off to the city of Berea,[a] where they once again went into the synagogue. 11 They found that the Jews of Berea were of more noble character and much more open minded than those of Thessalonica. They were hungry to learn and eagerly received the word. Every day they opened the scrolls of Scripture to search and examine them, to verify that what Paul taught them was true.
