Paul left Athens and went to Corinth. He went to a house belonging to a man named Titus Justus, a worshiper of God; his house was next to a synagogue. Crispus, the synagogue official, came to believe in the Lord along with his entire household, and many of the Corinthians who heard believed and were baptized. (Acts 18:1, 7-8)
Corinth was very important city in the ancient world. The Temple of Apollo must have been very impressive. There was even a Jewish synagogue. But the tiny Christian community was a bit more humble. They met in people’s homes.
