Paul's Missionary Journeys

Journey to Mitylene

Acts 20:14

When he met us at Assos, we took him aboard and went on to Mitylene. Acts 20:14

City: "The chief city of the island of Lesbos, the largest of the Aegean islands located near the shore of Asia Minor (modern Turkey)...It was common for ships to overnight in convenient harbors and set sail early in the morning to take advantage of the favorable morning winds. The city is built upon an extension of land that was origianlly a small island, but which later was connected to the larger island by a causeway. The city, therefore had two excellent harbors, one on either side of this promontory." (Freedman:Volume 4:879-80)

Summary: Paul met the rest of his companions who had come from Assos on the ship, and boarded with them.
