1.  Strengthening the disciples

    Acts 18:23   And after he had spent some time there, he departed, and went over all
    the country of Galatia and Phrygia in order, strengthening all the disciples.

    a.  Apollos is instructed

      Acts 18:24-26   And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent
      man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus.
      25.  This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit,
      he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of
      26.  And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla
      had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more

  3.  At Ephesus some disciples receive the Holy Ghost

    Acts 19:1-6   And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having
    passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples,
    2.  He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they
    said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.
    3.  And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto
    John's baptism.
    4.  Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto
    the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on
    Christ Jesus.
    5.  When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
    6.  And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and
    they spake with tongues, and prophesied.

    a.  Paul remains 2-3 years teaching them

      Acts 19:8-10   And he went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of
      three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God.
      9.  But when divers were hardened, and believed not, but spake evil of that way
      before the multitude, he departed from them, and separated the disciples, disputing
      daily in the school of one Tyrannus.
      10.  And this continued by the space of two years; so that all they which dwelt in
      Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks.

    b.  God does miracles

      Acts 19:11-12   And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul:
      12.  So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and
      the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.

    c.  The 7 sons of Sceva

      Acts 19:13-16   Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call  
      over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you
      by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.
      14.  And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which
      did so.
      15.  And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who
      are ye?
      16.  And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them,
      and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.

    d.  Sorcery books are burned

      Acts 19:19   Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together,
      and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it
      fifty thousand pieces of silver.

  4.  On to Macedonia and Greece

    Acts 20:1-2   And after the uproar was ceased, Paul called unto him the disciples, and
    embraced them, and departed for to go into Macedonia.
    2.  And when he had gone over those parts, and had given them much exhortation, he
    came into Greece,

  5.  Paul at Troas

      Acts 20:6-10   And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread,
      and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days.
      7.  And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break
      bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his
      speech until midnight.
      8.  And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered
      9.  And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into
      a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell
      down from the third loft, and was taken up dead.
      10.  And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said, Trouble not
      yourselves; for his life is in him.

  6.  Paul at Miletus

    Acts 20:15   And we sailed thence, and came the next day over against Chios; and the
    next day we arrived at Samos, and tarried at Trogyllium; and the next day we came to

    a.  Pauls farwell to the Ephesian elders   

      Acts 20:17   And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus, and called the elders of the
      church.      ( see Vs. 18-38 for Paulís address to them )

 7.  Paul at Caesarea

    Acts 21:7-9   And when we had finished our course from Tyre, we came to Ptolemais,
    and saluted the brethren, and abode with them one day.
    8.  And the next day we that were of Paul's company departed, and came unto
    Caesarea: and we entered into the house of Philip the evangelist, which was one of the
    seven; and abode with him.
    9.  And the same man had four daughters, virgins, which did prophesy.

    a.  Agabus the Prophet

      Acts 21:10-12   And as we tarried there many days, there came down from Judaea a
      certain prophet, named Agabus.
      11.  And when he was come unto us, he took Paul's girdle, and bound his own hands
      and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the
      man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.
      12.  And when we heard these things, both we, and they of that place, besought him
      not to go up to Jerusalem.

    b.  Paul is determined to go   

      Acts 21:13-14   Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine
      heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name
      of the Lord Jesus.
      14.  And when he would not be persuaded, we ceased, saying, The will of the Lord
      be done.
