Next 4 years of the Book of Acts, Acts 18:23-21:18

Paul’s third missionary trip lasted four years, which covers Acts 18:23 to Acts 21:18. During this time Paul again wrote a number of letters to churches he had visited, including Corinthians, and Romans. Some of the earlier letters Paul wrote included Galatians AD49 and Thessalonians.

Paul had already fallen out with Mark while on a trip with Barnabas. Now Paul takes on Timothy to mentor him. Both Paul and Timothy meet a lot of opposition.

Paul in all his travels relied on the Holy Spirit and God in what he was to do next.

Four years was a long time for one of Paul’s missionary trips.
