Corinth

 

Acts 
18:1-18

 

Paul traveled from Athens to Corinth where he stayed with Aquila and Priscilla. At Corinth, Paul made his living by making tents.

At Corinth, Paul wrote a letter known as 1 Thessalonians to the Christians at Thessalonica.

 

Context: Corinth was located on the isthmus that connects northern and southern Greece. Because the isthmus is narrow, ships traveling from east to west would often transfer their cargo by land through Corinth in order to resume their journey on the other side. The tents made by Paul and Aquila would have been used by merchants and others who needed shelter when traveling. To see the sights in Corinth click here.
