A VALUABLE TIMELINE

Print it out and keep it handy.

 

It can be terribly confusing to figure out when and where Paul went on his 3 main trips + 4th trip to Rome at the end. The following shows what he did, where he went and when he wrote his 14 books of the New Testament.

33 ADthe cross. The church is formed after Pentecost

34 - Saul (Paul) threatens the church, puts them in prison and kills them (Acts 8:3; 9:1)

40 – Saul (Paul) visits Peter and James in Jerusalem (3 years after being in Arabia Gal 1:18)

43 – Paul caught up to 3rd heaven (2Cor 12:2-4). This is the “14 YEARS AGO” in 43AD of 2Cor

       12:2. This is God’s preparation for Paul before his first trip two years later in 45AD. There are

        two lots of 14 years – one 14 years ‘ago’ (2Cor 12:2) and one 14 years ‘after’ (Gal 2:1)

43 – Barnabas collects Saul (Paul) from Antioch (Acts 11:22)

50 – Jerusalem meeting. Confronts Peter (Acts 15:2; Gal 2:11). Paul writes Galatians soon after.

       This is the “14 YEARS AFTER” he returns from Arabia (Gal 2:1). Early 37 to late 50 ie 14 years.

 

50 – 53 PAUL’S 2nd TRIP (Acts 16-18:22). He writes 1&2 Thessalonians at Corinth (Acts 18:11)

       in 57AD; at Macedonia (Acts 20:1; writes Romans at Corinth around 57AD as well (Acts 20:3)
