Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews:
 And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,
 Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ.
 And some of them believed, and consorted with Paul and Silas; and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few.
 But the Jews which believed not, moved with envy, took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people.
 And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;
 Whom Jason hath received: and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus.
 And they troubled the people and the rulers of the city, when they heard these things.
 And when they had taken security of Jason, and of the other, they let them go.
 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.
 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
 Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.
 But when the Jews of Thessalonica had knowledge that the word of God was preached of Paul at Berea, they came thither also, and stirred up the people.
 And then immediately the brethren sent away Paul to go as it were to the sea: but Silas and Timotheus abode there still.
 And they that conducted Paul brought him unto Athens: and receiving a commandment unto Silas and Timotheus for to come to him with all speed, they departed.
1 John 1:1-10
 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)
 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.
 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?
 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?
 The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee?
 Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel.
 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a man.
 If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day?
