Paul's Missionary Journeys

Vision at Troas

Acts 16:6-10

So they passed by Mysia and went down to Troas. Acts 16:8

City: "Located ten miles from ancient Troy. Alexandria Troas (its full name) was a Roman colony and an important seaport for connections between Macedonia and Greece on the one hand and Asia Minor on the other." (NIV Study Bible:1676)

Summary: Paul and Silas were kept from entering Mysia and Bithynia by the Spirit of Jesus, so they passed down to Troas. Here Paul had a vision of a man of Macedonia begging him to "Come over to Macedonia and help us!" After seeing the vision, they set out immediately for Macedonia, concluding that God had called them to preach there.
