Ruins at PtolemaisIn Acts 16.31 we read, "they replied, 'Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved - you and your household.'" And in Acts 16.32, "Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house." We are told in Acts 18.8 that, "Crispus, the synagogue ruler, and the entire Crispus household believed in the Lord, and many of the Corinthians who heard him believed and were baptized." Acts 18.26 explains, "He began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they invited him to their home and explained to him the way of God more adequately."

Ephesian Elders Farewell

Icon of Paul PreachingPaul explains in Acts 20.20-21, "You know that I have not hesitated to preach anything that would be helpful to you but have taught you publicly and from house to house. I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus." Again in Acts 21.7 Paul explains, "We continued our voyage from Tyre and landed at Ptolemais, where we greeted the brothers and stayed with them for a day."
