Acts 17 records the remarkable visit Paul and his companions had in this notable city. Jealous Jews opposed Paul because his message of the crucified and risen Messiah was so effective, but he was able to escape. The angry mob took Jason to the Roman Forum since he had hosted Paul.
Luke, the author of Acts used the word “politarches” to describe these Roman authorities. For hundreds of years, there was no proof that was an actual word used in the ancient world fueling attacks from skeptics until that exact word was found etched into the wall of this ancient forum. Up until 1962, this location was a bus stop. This recent discovery confirmed that the Scriptures were a reliable source all along.
