Paul: A Critical Life

Paul left the church of Antioch. His choice of the prosperous city of Ephesus as a second long-term missionary base may have been due to its proximity to Galatia, Thessalonica, Corinth, Philippi, Antioch, and Pisidia. Paul founded the church at Ephesus with Prisca and Aquila. This chapter argues that Paul's first year in Ephesus was trouble-free. The period of Paul's imprisonment must have been between the composition of the Letter to the Galatians and the writing of the First Letter to the Corinthians. This period is further limited by two factors: communications between Asia and Greece would have been cut from the end of the sailing season, and Paul is unlikely to have ventured into the interior of Anatolia in the depths on winter.
