The Apostle Paul’s Missionary Journeys

Apostle-Paul
I’ve always found it helpful to have a mental overview of the timeframe in which the Apostle Paul is spoken about in Acts and of course where Paul was writing his various epistles from. There is a wealth of information on this topic on the Internet so you have a lot to pick and choose from. The links and maps that I present below provide a pretty good estimated timeline and also give you a visual overview of his journeys. I’ve selected multiple links for each subject area as each link given provides a distinct perspective.  In addition there are direct linkages to the New Testament city names and Roman Provinces and their current geographical locations. If you’ve run across links which you think are superior to the one’s I’ve posted (which is highly possible), let me know and I can update this post.
