And when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Jews.
And Paul, according to his custom, went in unto them. And for three sabbath days he reasoned with them out of the scriptures:
Declaring and insinuating that the Christ was to suffer and to rise again from the dead; and that this is Jesus Christ, whom I preach to you.

And they stirred up the people: and the rulers of the city, hearing these things,
And having taken satisfaction of Jason and of the rest, they let them go.
