Acts 16: 6-10

Paul’s Vision of the Man of Macedonia

Paul and his companions traveled throughout the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been kept by the Holy Spirit from preaching the word in the province of Asia. When they came to the border of Mysia, they tried to enter Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them to. So they passed by Mysia and went down to Troas. During the night Paul had a vision of a man of Macedonia standing and begging him, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” 10 After Paul had seen the vision, we got ready at once to leave for Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them.

I was hoping the Commentary would explain, but it did not!!! This is one of those times that I wish I understood the geography of the map back then!! I guess today’s reading left me with a lot of unanswered questions??? But it is extremely interesting to read that Holy… Read more »
