Epistle Reflection

We must be like newborn babes,
always thirsty for spiritual milk,
so that we may grow up to be saved.

New Testament Reading - Paul in Asia


1While Apollos was in Corinth, Paul traveled through Turkey and arrived in Ephesus, where he found several disciples.


8Then Paul went to the synagogue and preached boldly each Sabbath daya for three months, telling what he believed and why, and persuading many to believe in Jesus. 9But some rejected his message and publicly spoke against Christ, so he left, refusing to preach to them again. Pulling out the believers, he began a separate meeting at the lecture hall of Tyrannus and preached there daily. 10This went on for the next two years, so that everyone in the Turkish province of Asia Minor — both Jews and Greeks — heard the Lord’s message.
