      passage: Acts 17:1-17:15

      Chapter 17

      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.

      passage: John 11:47-11:57

      Chapter 11

      Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said,
      What do we? for this man doeth many miracles. If we let him thus alone,
      all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away
      both our place and nation. And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the
      high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,
      Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for
      the people, and that the whole nation perish not. And this spake he
      not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that
      Jesus should die for that nation; And not for that nation only, but
      that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were
      scattered abroad. Then from that day forth they took counsel together
      for to put him to death. Jesus therefore walked no more openly among
      the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into
      a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples. And the
      Jews' passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to
      Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves. Then sought they
      for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple,
      What think ye, that he will not come to the feast? Now both the chief
      priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man
      knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.
