Starting place of Paul&apos;s Third Missionary Journey<br />
While here, Paul raises Eutyches from the dead (Acts 20:7-12) in 57 A.D.
Paul&apos;s conversion to become a Christian on the road to Damascus was extremely important to Christianity and our understanding of it. It also shaped the way Paul ministered to others. During Paul&apos;s conversion, he got blinded by Jesus (Acts 9) and was miraculously healed by Ananias. Because of these events, Paul chose to convert others by simply preaching powerful messages and sermons instead of performing miracles.
The Riot in Ephesus: Paul faced conflict in Ephesus when a silversmith got angry with Paul for saying that the &quot;gods&quot; he was making were not gods at all. The silversmith got the whole city in an uproar and they captured Paul&apos;s traveling partners. Paul wanted to speak to the crowd, but his disciples and friends warned him against it. But, the city clerk told the crowd to calm down and go to court if they want to press charges against Paul. After hearing this, the crowds dispersed and Paul left for Macedonia. (Acts 19:23-20:1) <br />
The Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit seems to be involved in Paul&apos;s Third Missionary. In Acts 20:7-12, Paul raises Eutychus from the dead by the Holy Spirit. Also, Paul says this about the Holy Spirit in Acts 20:22-23: &quot;And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there. I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me.&quot; So, it seems that the Holy Spirit played a large role in Paul&apos;s letters and ministry, most notably in his decisions on where to go and make new disciples on his journey.
