Acts 17

Paul and Silas in Thessalonica

They spread the word, many people believed, some didn't and caused a ruckus.

Seems like the same basic story over and over.

Paul and Silas in Berea

They went to Berea and preached. The Jews there were much more civil, but the guys from Thessalonica heard about it and came to Berea to stir them up.

Thessalonicans are dicks, got it

Paul in Athens

Paul is in Athens and is upset that he sees so many idols. He preaches and is brought to the areopagus. They ask him to share his teachings.

Paul Addresses the Areopagus

He told the story of Jesus and did some more preaching. When he talked of the resurrection some mocked but some became followers.

That actually sounds pretty believable. 


  1. "Thessalonicans are dicks..." Priceless.

  2. I like the usage of the word "superstitious" in verse 22. =) I don't think Christians could really understand why non believers would find this kind of funny. It would be like someone from the Navajo tribe calling a Pagan superstitious. It's just silly to outsiders.

  3. My translation says religious, not superstitious, that is hilarious. Looks like most translations say religious but a few say superstitious.
