Ancient Macedonia is a beautiful place that in today’s world, is located between southeastern Albania and central northern Greece. In ancient times, the Macedonia mentioned in the New Testament was brought under control by Philip II, who lived from 359 – 336 BC. The chief city was renamed and established there as Philippi, and was a chief mining center for gold and silver. When Philip was assassinated in 336 BC, this city was the strongest in ancient Greece. In the New Testament, Paul was warned by the Holy Spirit not to continue his journey through Asia, but to turn and go through Macedonia. This decision was significant because of cities like Philippi. As we learn in the Scripture today, the first missionary journey of Paul was important and the second was powerful. Macedonia had been taken by the Romans in 168 BC, and by about AD 50 the first Christian Church was founded in Philippi.
