Acts 18:11-13 The Passion Translation (TPT)

11 For the next year and a half, Paul stayed in Corinth, faithfully teaching the word of God.

Paul Brought before the Roman Official Gallio

12 Now, at that time, Gallio was the regional governor who ruled over the Roman province of Achaia,[a] and the Jews turned against Paul and came together to seize him and bring him publicly before the governor’s court.[b] 13 They accused him before Gallio, saying, “This man is creating a disturbance by persuading people to worship God in ways that are contrary to our laws.”


  1. Acts 18:12 The province of Achaia included the three most important parts of southern Greece: Attica, Boeotia, and the Peloponnesus. Gallio was the brother of Seneca, the tutor of Nero.
  2. Acts 18:12 Or “judgment seat.” This was a raised platform with a marble bench where judicial and governmental decrees were issued. This bench has been discovered after excavations in the agora.
