Bible Cities: Cenchrea
Ancient Cenchrea

Map of Ancient Cenchrea


Cenchrea in Easton's Bible Dictionary millet, the eastern harbour of Corinth, from which it was distant about 9 miles east, and the outlet for its trade with the Asiatic shores of the Mediterranean. When Paul returned from his second missionary journey to Syria, he sailed from this port (Acts 18:18). In Rom. 16:1 he speaks as if there were at the time of his writing that epistle an organized church there. The western harbour of Corinth was Lechaeum, about a mile and a half from the city. It was the channel of its trade with Italy and the west.

Cenchrea in Fausset's Bible Dictionary Cenchrea or Cenchreae. Now Kikries; from Greek Kenchri, "the millet," a grain abounding there. The harbor of Corinth on the Saronic gulf, and its channel of trade with Asia Minor, as Lechaeum, on the Corinthian gulf, was with Italy and the W. Corinth was joined by walls to Lechaeum; so that the pass between Corinth and Cenchrea (nine miles apart from one another) was the only one into the Morea from Greece. Paul sailed from Cenchrea, returning to Syria from his second missionary journey (Acts 18:18), after having shorn his head there in fulfillment of a vow. He wrote to the Romans in his third journey, and alludes to the church at Cenchrea, of which Phoebe was "deaconess" (Greek Romans 16:1).

Cenchrea in Naves Topical Bible A city of Corinth Ac 18:18; Ro 16:1

Cenchrea in Smiths Bible Dictionary (accurately Cenchre'ae) (millet), the eastern harbor of Corinth (i.e. its harbor on the Saronic Gulf) and the emporium of its trade with the Asiatic shores of the Mediterranean, as Lechaeum on the Crointhian Gulf connected it with Italy and the west. St. Paul sailed from Cenchrae, Ac 18:18 on his return to Syria from his second missionary journey. An organized church seems to have been formed here. Ro 16:1

Cenchrea in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE sen'-kre-e (Kegchreai, Westcott and Hort, The New Testament in Greek Kenchreai; the King James Version incorrectly Cenchrea): A seaport of Corinth on the eastern side of the isthmus (see CORINTH). Here according to Acts 18:18, Paul had his hair shorn before sailing for Syria, since he had a vow. A local church must have been established there by Paul, since Phoebe, the deaconess of Cenchrea, was entrusted with the Epistle to the Romans, and was commended to them in the highest terms by the apostle, who charged them to "assist her in whatsoever matter she may have need" (Rom 16:1,2).

Cenchrea Scripture - Acts 18:18 And Paul [after this] tarried [there] yet a good while, and then took his leave of the brethren, and sailed thence into Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila; having shorn [his] head in Cenchrea: for he had a vow.
