Acts 17

Summary: Paul continues his tour, starting in Thessalonica. The people there follow the usual pattern (some believe, others riot, Paul kicked out), and kick Paul out of the next town he visits, too. Without his traveling buddies, he settles in Athens, where the people follow any religious trend that pops up. Upon telling the Athenians about Jesus, most are skeptical but at least peaceful.

Response: I know that Paul (and I) should come to expect that most people who hear the Word will reject it, some defiantly so. It sucks, but it's part of the call as followers of Christ to spread His love.
