In Thessalonica

1 When they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica,1 where there was a Jewish synagogue. 2 As his custom was, Paul went into the synagogue,2 and on three Sabbath3 days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures,4 3 explaining and proving that the Christa had to suffer5 and rise from the dead.6 "This Jesus I am proclaiming to you is the Christ,b "7 he said. 4 Some of the Jews were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas,8 as did a large number of God-fearing Greeks and not a few prominent women. 5 But the Jews were jealous; so they rounded up some bad characters from the marketplace, formed a mob and started a riot in the city.9 They rushed to Jason's10 house in search of Paul and Silas in order to bring them out to the crowd.c 6 But when they did not find them, they dragged11 Jason and some other brothers12 before the city officials, shouting: "These men who have caused trouble all over the world13 have now come here,14 7 and Jason has welcomed them into his house. They are all defying Caesar's decrees, saying that there is another king, one called Jesus."15 8 When they heard this, the crowd and the city officials were thrown into turmoil. 9 Then they made Jason16 and the others post bond and let them go.
