THE MISSIONARY JOURNEYS
 
First journey
From Cyprus to Anatolia, Paul and Barnabas preached zealously in the synagogues about the Good News of the Resurrection and salvation in Jesus Christ, founding new communities and healing the sick.
 
                                                                      
Second journey
In 50 AD Paul decided to leave again, heading this time to Asia Minor. His apostolic journey, which lasted until 53 AD, took him to Greece and Macedonia where he converted Philip. The two men were beaten and thrown in prison but one night there was an earthquake and their jailer was converted, with the result that they were released the next morning.
From there they went to Thessalonica, to Berea and to Athens before returning to Antioch where followers of Jesus were first known by the name ‘Christians.’
 
Third journey
In 53 or 54 AD Paul began his third great journey going first to Ephesus where he stayed for three years. His preaching led to a decline in worship of the goddess Artemis and the trade connected to her veneration also suffered a setback provoking a popular uprising, although Paul was unharmed by it.
He then visited the Christian communities he had founded in Asia Minor and was very touched by the encounter as he sensed he would not see them again.
The last stage of his journey took him to Caesarea, where the prophet Agabo predicted his arrest and imprisonment, before arriving in Jerusalem towards the end of May 58 AD, bringing with him the offerings collected during this last voyage.
