Berea

Berea [N] [H]

a city of Macedonia to which Paul with Silas and Timotheus went when persecuted at Thessalonica ( Acts 17:10 Acts 17:13 ), and from which also he was compelled to withdraw, when he fled to the sea-coast and thence sailed to Athens (14,15). Sopater, one of Paul's companions belonged to this city, and his conversion probably took place at this time ( Acts 20:4 ). It is now called Verria.
