Long Stay

In obedience to a vision from God, we learn in verses 9-18 that Paul spends well over a year in the city of Corinth preaching the Good News.

Some of the religious leaders were angry with Paul’s message, so they attempted to have him prosecuted.¬† When the case went poorly for them, they took out their frustrations on the synagogue ruler Sosthenes.
