The Book of  Acts

Acts tells the story of the early Christian church and how Christianity spread to other parts of the world. It covers the first years of the Christian church. Most people who study the Bible feel that Jesus' disciple, Luke, was the author of Acts. They feel that the Book of Luke and the Book of Acts were meant to be together. They also feel that Luke may have planned to write a third book.

The 2 important people in the Book of Acts are Peter and Paul.  Some important events that happen in Acts are the coming of the Holy Spirit, the persecution of Christians, the conversion of Saul (Paul), and the spread of Christianity to other parts of the world.

 


Acts 16 - 18

Paul goes to Greece and speaks to the leaders in Athens.
Paul travels to many cities in Greece.

 

Acts 16


Paul meets Timothy.


Paul went to Derbe and Lystra.  There was a disciple there named Timotheus (Timothy).  His mother was Jewish, and she had become a Christian. His father was Greek.
[1] Then came he to Derbe and Lystra: and, behold, a certain disciple was there, named Timotheus, the son of a certain woman, which was a Jewess, and believed; but his father was a Greek:
 

The Christians in Lystra and Iconium said good things about Timothy. Paul decided to take Timothy with him. But first, Paul had Timothy circumcised. He did that because all of the Jews knew that Timothy's father was Greek (his mother was Jewish so he needed to be circumcised).
[2] Which was well reported of by the brethren that were at Lystra and Iconium.
[3] Him would Paul have to go forth with him; and took and circumcised him because of the Jews which were in those quarters: for they knew all that his father was a Greek.


They traveled through the cities. They told the Christians the rules that the apostles in Jerusalem had given (
You should not eat meat that was offered to idols. You should not eat meat with blood in it or meat from animals that were strangled.  You should not have sexual relations outside of marriage.)
[4] And as they went through the cities, they delivered them the decrees for to keep, that were ordained of the apostles and elders which were at Jerusalem.


The churches became stronger in faith. Every day, more and more people joined the churches.

[5] And so were the churches established in the faith, and increased in number daily.

Paul goes to Macedonia instead of Asia.


They went through the areas of Phrygia and Galatia. But the Holy Spirit did not let them preach in Asia.
[6] Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,


They went to Mysia and planned to go into Bithynia. But the Holy Spirit did not let them.
[7] After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not.


After they passed Mysia, they went to Troas.
[8] And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas.


Paul had a dream at night. A man from Macedonia was standing there. He asked Paul to come to Macedonia to help them.
[9] And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.


After he saw the vision, they immediately left to go to Macedonia.  God had called them to preach there.

[10] And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavored to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.

 


After they left Troas, they went straight to Samothracia. The next day, they went to Neapolis.
[11] Therefore loosing from Troas, we came with a straight course to Samothracia, and the next day to Neapolis;


Then, they went to Philippi. It is the main city of that part of Macedonia. It was a Roman colony.  They stayed in that city for some days.
[12] And from thence to Philippi, which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia, and a colony: and we were in that city abiding certain days.

 



A woman named Lydia.


On the sabbath, they went out of the city to the side of the river. They went to an area where people were praying. They sat down and talked to the women who were there.

[13] And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither.


One of the woman was named Lydia.  She sold purple cloth. She was from the city of Thyatira. She worshipped God, and she believed what Paul and Silas said about Jesus.

[14] And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.


She was baptized, and the people in her household were baptized. She asked Paul and Silas to come and stay at her house if they felt she was faithful to the Lord. So they did.
[15] And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us.
 



Paul heals a woman of an evil spirit, then he goes to jail.



One day, they were going to prayer.  They met a young woman. She was able to tell the future because she had a spirit in her. She was a slave, and her masters made money from her telling the future.

[16] And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:


The woman followed Paul and Silas. She said, "These men are the servants of the most high God. They show us the way to be saved."
[17] The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.


She did this for many days. Paul got upset, and he turned and talked to the spirit in the girl. He said, "I command you to come out of her in the name of Jesus Christ." And then the spirit came out of her.
[18] And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.


The woman's masters were mad because they couldn't make any more money with her now. They caught Paul and Silas and took them to the city's leaders.
[19] And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers,


They told the city officials that Paul and Silas were Jews, and they were causing trouble in the city. They said that they were teaching things that were against the law for Romans.
[20] And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city,
[21] And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans.
 

The crowd was against Paul and Silas. They leaders had their clothes ripped off and ordered them to be whipped.  After they were whipped many times, they threw them into jail.  The man in charge of them in jail put them in an inner part of the jail.  He used chains on their feet to keep them in large blocks of wood.
[22] And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them.
[23] And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely:
[24] Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.
 

At midnight, Paul and Silas were praying and singing praises to God. The other prisoners heard them. Suddenly, there was a big earthquake. The jail shook down to the foundation. The jail doors opened, and the prisoners' chains came loose.
[25] And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.
[26] And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed.


The man in charge of the jail woke up and saw the jail doors open. He thought that the prisoners had escaped, and he took his sword out to kill himself.
[27] And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.


But Paul yelled out to him and told him not to hurt himself because they were all still there.

[28] But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.


The jailer got a light and hurried into the jail. He was afraid and shaking, and he fell down in front of Paul and Silas. He asked them what he should do to be saved.
[29] Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,
[30] And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?


They told him to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and he and his family would be saved.

[31] And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.


Paul and Silas talked to him and his family about Jesus. The jailer took them and washed off their backs where they got whipped.  Then the jailer and his whole family were baptized immediately.
[32] And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.
[33] And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.


The jailer took Paul and Silas to his house and gave them something to eat. He and his family rejoiced and worshipped God.

[34] And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.


The next day, the city leaders decided to let them out of jail. They told the guards to go let them out.
[35] And when it was day, the magistrates sent the serjeants, saying, Let those men go.


The jailer told Paul that the city officials decided to let them go. He told them to leave in peace.
[36] And the keeper of the prison told this saying to Paul, The magistrates have sent to let you go: now therefore depart, and go in peace.


But Paul was a Roman citizen. He said that he should have had a trial. They had put him into jail without a trial. Now they want to put them out quietly. Paul said no, that the city officials should come and let them out themselves.

[37] But Paul said unto them, They have beaten us openly uncondemned, being Romans, and have cast us into prison; and now do they thrust us out privily? nay verily; but let them come themselves and fetch us out.


The guards told the city leaders what Paul said. Then the leaders were afraid because Paul was a Roman.  So they went to the jail themselves and let them out.  They wanted them to leave the city.

[38] And the serjeants told these words unto the magistrates: and they feared, when they heard that they were Romans.
[39] And they came and besought them, and brought them out, and desired them to depart out of the city.


After they got out of jail, they went back to Lydia's house. After they met with the Christians, they left the city.

[40] And they went out of the prison, and entered into the house of Lydia and when they had seen the brethren, they comforted them, and departed.
 


Acts 17

 

Paul goes to Thessalonica.


Paul and Silas passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia. Then they arrived in the city of Thessalonica.  There was a Jewish synagogue in this city.
[1] Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews:


As before, Paul went into the synagogue. For 3 sabbath days, he told them about Jesus. He used the scriptures that said the Messiah would come and suffer and then rise from the dead.  He told them that Jesus was the Messiah.
[2] And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,
[3] Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ.


Some of the Jews believed Paul and joined him and Silas.  Many of the Greeks believed him, and many of the women leaders believed him.
[4] And some of them believed, and consorted with Paul and Silas; and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few.
 

The Jews that did not believe him were jealous. They got some bad men to start a riot so that they could hurt Paul and Silas.  Paul and Silas were staying at the house of a man named Jason. The Jews went to Jason's house to bring them out, but they were not there. So, they caught Jason and some of the Christian brothers and took them to the city leaders. They told the leaders about Paul and Silas saying Jesus was the king. They said that Jason was letting them stay with him.  They said it was all against Caesar. 
[5] But the Jews which believed not, moved with envy, took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people.
[6] And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;
[7] Whom Jason hath received: and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus.


The city leaders and other people in the city were upset about this. They made Jason and the others pay money, then they let them go.
[8] And they troubled the people and the rulers of the city, when they heard these things.
[9] And when they had taken security of Jason, and of the other, they let them go.

 



Paul goes to Berea, then Athens.


The Christians sent Paul and Silas to Berea during the night. They went to the synagogue to talk to the Jews.  The Jews in Berea listened to the words Paul and Silas said.  Then they checked the scriptures to see if they were right.
[10] And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.
[11] These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.


Many of the Jews in Berea believed in Jesus and also many honorable Greek men and women believed.
[12] Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.
 

When the Jews in Thessalonica found out that Paul was preaching the word of God in Berea, they went there.  They stirred up trouble with the people. The people immediately sent Paul away to the sea coast. Silas and Timothy stayed in Berea.
[13] But when the Jews of Thessalonica had knowledge that the word of God was preached of Paul at Berea, they came thither also, and stirred up the people.
[14] And then immediately the brethren sent away Paul to go as it were to the sea: but Silas and Timotheus abode there still.

 

Some of the men from Berea went with Paul until he got to Athens. Then they went back to Berea and took with a message for Silas and Timothy.  The message was for them to hurry and come to Athens with him.
[15] And they that conducted Paul brought him unto Athens: and receiving a commandment unto Silas and Timotheus for to come to him with all speed, they departed.
 

Paul waited for Silas and Timothy in Athens.  While he waited, he got upset because the city had so many idols.
[16] Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry.
 

He talked about this with the Jews in the synagogue and the people who were with them. He talked about this with people he met in the market everyday.
[17] Therefore disputed he in the synagogue with the Jews, and with the devout persons, and in the market daily with them that met with him.


Some of the Greek philosophers who were Epicureans and Stoics saw him. Paul was preaching about Jesus and His resurrection. Some of the Greek philosophers called Paul a babbler.  Others said he seemed to be talking about strange gods.

[18] Then certain philosophers of the Epicureans, and of the Stoicks, encountered him. And some said, What will this babbler say? other some, He seemeth to be a setter forth of strange gods: because he preached unto them Jesus, and the resurrection.

 


(From BiblePlaces.com)
Areopagus is another name for Mars Hill. It is a marble hill that is close to the Acropolis in Athens.  It was a place that the Greeks used for court and trials. This is where Paul gave his speech about the "Unknown God".


Paul speaks to city leaders at Mars Hill.


They took Paul to Areopagus (also called Mars Hill). They asked him what he had been talking about. They had never heard of it before. They wanted to know what it meant.

[19] And they took him, and brought him unto Areopagus, saying, May we know what this new doctrine, whereof thou speakest, is?
[20] For thou bringest certain strange things to our ears: we would know therefore what these things mean.


People from Athens and people who visited there enjoyed hearing about new things.
[21] (For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.)


Paul stood up in the middle of Mars Hill.  He said that he could see that the men of Athens worshipped the Greek gods.  Paul said he saw one altar that said, "To the Unknown God."  Since the people of Athens do not know who that is, he will tell them.
[22] Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
[23] For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.



God made the world and everything in the world.  He is the Lord of heaven and earth.  He doesn't live in temples made with human hands.
[24] God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;


He gave life and breath to all things. He does not need any help from man.

[25] Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;


All men came from Adam, the one man that God made.  God decided which parts of the earth each man will live in.

[26] And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

 

God is not far from any of us. God wants everyone to seek after Him. In God, we live and are alive. The Greeks' own poets have said that we are His children.
[27] That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
[28] For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.


Since we are God's children, we should not think of the Godhead (God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit) like gold, silver, or stone statues made by men.
[29] Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.


In the past, men were ignorant about this. God forgave them then. But now He commands all men to repent and stop worshiping statues.

[30] And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:


God has planned a day when He will fairly judge the world through Jesus Christ.  He has shown this by raising Jesus from the dead.

[31] Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

 

When the people in the audience heard Paul talk about Jesus being raised from the dead, some of them made fun of it.  Other people said they would hear more about it later.
[32] And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked: and others said, We will hear thee again of this matter.


Then Paul left Mars Hill. But some men believed him and went with him.  These men were Dionysius and some other men. There was also a woman named Damaris.  Dionysius was an Aeropagite (one of the city officials).
[33] So Paul departed from among them.
[34] Howbeit certain men clave unto him, and believed: among the which was Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.
 



Acts 18


Paul meets Aquila and Priscilla in the city of Corinth.


Paul left Athens and went to the city of Corinth.
[1] After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth;
 

Claudius was the emperor of the Roman Empire from they years A.D. 41 to 54.  He forced all of the Jews to leave Rome.

He met a couple named Aquila and Priscilla. They were Jewish.  Aquila was born in the area named Pontus. They had just come from Rome after Emperor Claudius commanded all of the Jews to leave.
[2] And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them.

Aquila and Priscilla did the same kind of work that Paul did. They all made tents. He stayed with them and worked with them.
[3] And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers.


Every sabbath, he spoke at the synagogue and tried to persuade the Jews and Greeks to believe in Jesus Christ.
[4] And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.
 

Silas and Timothy came from Macedonia. After they arrived, Paul worked harder to testify to the Jews that Jesus was Christ.  But the Jews were against him.  They spoke against him.  Paul shook his clothes to show that he was shaking off the dust of them.  He said their deaths will be their own faults.  He told them that from then on, he would preach to the Gentiles.
[5] And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus was Christ.
[6] And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean: from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles.
 

He left and went to the house of a man named Justus. Justus worshipped God. His house was next to the synagogue.
[7] And he departed thence, and entered into a certain man's house, named Justus, one that worshipped God, whose house joined hard to the synagogue.


The leader of the synagogue was named Crispus. He believed in Jesus and all of his family did, too.  Many other people in Corinth believed in Jesus and were baptized.

[8] And Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized.


God spoke to Paul in a dream. He told Paul not to be afraid. Paul should not stop talking. God said He is with him and no one will hurt him. God said He has many people in the city of Corinth.
[9] Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:
[10] For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.


Paul stayed in Corinth a year and 6 months. He taught God's word to the people in the city.
[11] And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.


The city of Corinth was in the area named Achaia. When Gallio was the leader of Achaia, the Jews fought against Paul. They brought him to court for judgment. They accused Paul of persuading men to worship God against the law.
[12] And when Gallio was the deputy of Achaia, the Jews made insurrection with one accord against Paul, and brought him to the judgment seat,
[13] Saying, This fellow persuadeth men to worship God contrary to the law.
 

Paul was getting ready to speak. But Gallio said that since the Jews were accusing him of breaking the Jewish laws, they should handle it. He would not judge Paul.
[14] And when Paul was now about to open his mouth, Gallio said unto the Jews, If it were a matter of wrong or wicked lewdness, O ye Jews, reason would that I should bear with you:
[15] But if it be a question of words and names, and of your law, look ye to it; for I will be no judge of such matters.

 

Gallio sent them away from his court. The Greeks beat up Sosthenes, the leader of the Jewish synagogue.  They beat him up in front of Gallio's court, but Gallio didn't care.
[16] And he drave them from the judgment seat.
[17] Then all the Greeks took Sosthenes, the chief ruler of the synagogue, and beat him before the judgment seat. And Gallio cared for none of those things.


Paul stayed there in Corinth for a long time.  He made a promise to God, so he shaved his head. Then he left and sailed to Syria.  Priscilla and Aquila went with him.
[18] And Paul after this tarried there yet a good while, and then took his leave of the brethren, and sailed thence into Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila; having shorn his head in Cenchrea: for he had a vow.

 



Paul leaves Corinth.


They arrived in Ephesus. Paul went to the synagogue and tried to persuade the Jews to believe in Jesus.  They wanted him to stay there, but he said no. He told them he planned to go to Jerusalem for the feast.  He said he must leave, but he would return if it was God's will.  Paul sailed away from Ephesus, but Aquila and Priscilla stayed there.
[19] And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.
[20] When they desired him to tarry longer time with them, he consented not;
[21] But bade them farewell, saying, I must by all means keep this feast that cometh in Jerusalem: but I will return again unto you, if God will. And he sailed from Ephesus.


Paul landed at Caesarea. He visited the church there, then he went to Antioch.  He stayed there a while, then he left.  He went all over the country of Galatia and Phrygia to encourage and support the Christians in those places.
[22] And when he had landed at Caesarea, and gone up, and saluted the church, he went down to Antioch.
[23] And after he had spent some time there, he departed, and went over all the country of Galatia and Phrygia in order, strengthening all the disciples.

 



Apollos preaches to the Jews.


There was a Jew named Apollos. He was born in Alexandria.  He could speak well, and he knew a lot about the scriptures. He came to Ephesus.

[24] And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus.


Apollos knew a lot about the Lord. He was enthusiastic and taught about the Lord.  But, he only knew about John's baptism.
[25] This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John.

He talked boldly in the synagogue. Aquila and Priscilla heard him. They talked to him and explained about Jesus.
[26] And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.


Apollos decided to travel to the area of Achaia. The Christians wrote to the disciples in Achaia.  They asked them to welcome him when he arrived.  After he was there, he helped the other Christians a lot.

[27] And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him: who, when he was come, helped them much which had believed through grace:
 

Apollos was strong in using the scriptures to show Jewish people that Jesus was Christ the Messiah.
[28] For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publickly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.
