Recommended by the congregation at Antioch unto the grace of God, Paul, having chosen Silas as his companion, set out on his second missionary journey. After visiting the congregations founded by him on his first journey and having gained in young Timothy a new assistant, he entered Phrygia and Galatia, and then turned westward on one of the great military roads lending to the Aegean Sea. He was forbidden to preach in Asia, that Roman province comprising the southwestern portion of Asia Minor, and also from bringing the Gospel into Bithynia, the northern province.
