On to Athens
While Silas and Timothy were still in Berea, Paul was escorted by the brethren unto Athens. Paul then sent word to Silas and Timothy to come to Athens immediately. His message, no doubt, was carried by the same men who had accompanied Paul to Athens. Acts does not record Silas and Timothy's coming to Athens, but First Thessalonians strongly implies that they did come and that Timothy was dispatched from Athens to check on the new converts in Thessalonica (1 Thes. 3:1-6). Timothy then returned to give a report to Paul who had gone on to Corinth (Acts 18:5). It was from Corinth at this time that Paul wrote his first epistle to the Thessalonians.
Little Results in Athens
Athens was an intellectual center of the world at that time, yet Paul was to have very little fruit here. Paul taught us that “the world by wisdom knew not God” (1 Cor.1:21). Greek philosophy is very devilish. Virtually all of the notable Greek philosophers were homosexuals. Demons attack your mind when you read Greek literature. Many of the Greek gods are dressed like women.
