Experts in classics, early Christianity, and human geography analyze the growth, development, and self-understanding of the early Christian movement in urban settings.

Paul caused a raucous while he was in Thessalonica; it is an especially big deal because his teachings are questioned as anti-Rome which was a very dangerous position for him to be. It seems that because Paul was successful in Thessalonica some Jews are jealous and stir up an angry mob to turn against Paul and his companions (Acts ).

Acts On reaching Thessalonica, Paul and Silas preach in the Jewish synagogue on three consecutive Sabbaths (see Map 24).But some of the Jews become jealous. They round up the idle scoundrels from the agora and cause a riot. They rush to the home of Jason – one of the believers with whom Paul was staying – and drag him before the Roman magistrates.

It was an amazing series of events that brought Paul to Rome, the great capital city of the empire. One archaeological source suggests that the population of the imperial city in the first century was in excess of four million people, about three times the size of a large, modern city (Unger).

When Paul wrote to the saints in Rome. He is author of Paul and the Imperial Authorities at Thessalonica and Rome (Mohr Siebeck, ), and co-editor of volume 10 of New Documents Illustrating Early Christianity (Eerdmans, ).

His new book, Paul and the Ancient Celebrity Circuit: The Cross and Character Formation, is another Mohr Siebeck publication : In this excellent book, which was originally his doctoral dissertation, Tellbe examines the interaction between the early church, Jewish communities and civil authorities.

Tellbe argues that although initially the Christian movement was seen as part of the diverse Judaism of the first century, as differences emerged, the Jews became hostile to a group that could threaten the.

When Paul visited Thessalonica for the first time, he had recently come from Philippi, where he had “already suffered and been shamefully mistreated” (1 Thessalonians ; see Philippians ).(now revised and incorporated into Paul and the Imperial Authorities at Thessalonica and Rome (WUNT ; 1), with a discussion of Kim's book).
