Paul left Athens because of the many philosophies the people believed. They weren’t interested in the truth, but to soothe their itching ears. Paul had left Silas and Timothy in Berea. When Paul had reached Corinth, he met a couple from Rome named Priscilla and Aquila. Like Paul, they were tent makers. The tents they made were prayer shawls. They believed on Jesus and many other Jews and gentiles. When Timothy and Silas returned from Berea and Thessalonica and gave their report, Paul was grieved. Paul wrote to the Thessalonian church, 1 Thessalonians. He wrote to encourage and comfort the saints. The Thessalonian church was being persecuted. A few days after Paul wrote the first letter, he wrote 2 Thessalonians. Both 1st and 2nd Thessalonians is about the second coming of the Lord Jesus. Paul stayed in Corinth for a year and 1/2.
