Tales From the Bible by Mike Southern

"Whatever Happened to…?"

The stories in the Bible are full of people—many of them with names we can’t even pronounce because their language was so different from ours—but it’s easy to forget they were actual living people.

Most of them are mentioned only once; we read their names and never see (or think about) them again. If we do, we can only wonder what happened to them.

But sometimes those names do show up again. That’s especially true in the New Testament, because Paul sometimes mentions those people in his letters.

Today’s story mentions several of them. It comes from Acts 18:1-18.
