Paul at Thessalonica
17 Now when they had traveled through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to (A)Thessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Jews. 2 And (B)according to Paul’s custom, he went to them, and for three (C)Sabbaths reasoned with them from (D)the Scriptures, 3 [a]explaining and [b]giving evidence that the [c]Christ (E)had to suffer and (F)rise again from the dead, and saying, “(G)This Jesus whom I am proclaiming to you is the [d]Christ.” 4 (H)And some of them were persuaded and joined (I)Paul and Silas, [e]along with a large number of the (J)God-fearing (K)Greeks and [f]a number of the (L)leading women. 5 But (M)the Jews, becoming jealous and taking along some wicked men from the market place, formed a mob and set the city in an uproar; and attacking the house of (N)Jason, they were seeking to bring them out to the people. 6 When they did not find them, they began (O)dragging Jason and some brethren before the city authorities, shouting, “These men who have upset [g](P)the world have come here also; 7 [h]and Jason (Q)has welcomed them, and they all act (R)contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, Jesus.” 8 They stirred up the crowd and the city authorities who heard these things. 9 And when they had received a [i]pledge from (S)Jason and the others, they released them.
