Map of New Testament Cities | Index

Overview

Paul The apostle and his companions began their first missionary journey from Antioch, an important center of Christianity. Paul ministered on the island of Cyprus and in various towns in the South of Asia minor, preaching always in the synagogue and then to the Gentiles in every city.

On his second missionary journey Paul, and his companion Silas, and later Timothy, visited Syria, Cilicia, and parts of Asia Minor, across from there into Europe and ministered in Philippi, Thessalonica, Berea, Athens, and Corinth. In Corinth Paul ministered for a year and a half with the aid of Aquila and Priscilla. He finally returned to Antioch coming from Ephesus and Caesarea.

The third missionary journey of the apostle Paul brought him back to the churches, which he had established in the beginning of this ministry. For three full years Ephesus was the center of his missionary work. He followed up in Greece and traveled again to Corinth twice because of the many difficulties with the church in Corinth. At this time he wrote the Epistle to the Romans and then returned to Jerusalem in order to bless the churches there with the contributions that he had collected.

While he was in Jerusalem for a feast, many angry Jews made accusations against him and he was taken prisoner by the Roman commander and finally brought to the proconsul Felix at Caesarea. He finally appealed to Caesar, and on the way to Rome they were shipwrecked and found themselves on the island of Malta. He finally reached Rome where, despite being a prisoner, he was allowed to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is where the book a Acts comes to an end, what happened afterword is a matter of conjecture. Some believe that Paul was released, and ministered in Crete and Spain, and finally died as a martyr in Rome (67 A.D.). Others believe that Paul died during his first imprisonment.

These maps were designed to help in understanding the Roman world with a birds eye view, and the cities that Paul and his companions ministered in. The maps of Italy, Greece and Asia reveal mainly the cities mentioned in the New Testament. The map of Israel contains many more cities than those that were mentioned in New Testament. I recommend using maps often while studying the Bible and hopefully these maps will be a blessing to you as they are to me. Please feel free to use them in your studies and if you happen to share them with others be sure to mention Bible History Online. Thanks and enjoy!
