Lydia of Philippi

Paul’s mission was itinerant. With some others, he moved from one place to another to preach the message of God. The text for today is part of Paul’s missionary work in Europe. The use of the pronoun ‘we’ in verse 11 indicates that Luke, the author of the book, also joined the team that left Troas for Samothracia.
