Paul and Barnabas in Antioch and Iconium


Paul 2
Perga was a Greek city and capital of a region known as Pamphylia. (The region is now part of modern day Turkey). – Slide 2
Paul 3
When they landed in Perga, John Mark decided to leave Paul and Barnabas and return to Jerusalem.
Paul 5
When Paul and Barnabas went to the synagogue those in charge of the service sent them this message: ‘Brothers, if you have any word of encouragement come and give it.’


Paul 6
Paul spoke to them explaining how God had delivered the Jews from Egypt and promised a Messiah who would be a descendant of King David.
Paul 7
Paul then went on to explain that Jesus, who had been crucified and raised from the dead, was God’s chosen Saviour, the Messiah (Acts 13: 16-41).
Paul 8
When Paul and Barnabas left the synagogue, the people begged them to return the following week to speak further about these matters.


Paul 9
The following week huge crowds gathered to hear Paul speak. Some of the Jews, jealous of the attention Paul was commanding, started slandering Paul and argued against whatever he said. Paul declared that as the Jews had rejected the message about Jesus, they would tell it to the Gentiles. Many Gentiles became Christians and were full of joy and the Holy Spirit.
Paul 10
The Jews stirred up the influential religious women and the leaders of the city, and they incited a mob against Paul and Barnabas and ran them out of town.
Paul 12
Paul and Barnabas went to the Jewish synagogue and preached with such power that a great number of both Jews and Greeks became believers. They stayed in the town for some time and God gave them the power to do miraculous signs and wonders.


Paul 13
Some of the Jews, however, spurned God’s message and poisoned the minds of the Gentiles against Paul and Barnabas. Opinion was divided. Some sided with the Jews, and some with the Paul and Barnabas.
Paul 14
A mob of Gentiles and Jews, along with their leaders, plotted to attack and stone Paul and Barnabas.
Paul 15
Paul and Barnabas got to hear of the plot and fled from Iconium heading into the nearby region of Lycaonia and the town of Lystra.
