MACEDONIA

in New Testament times, was a Roman province lying north of Greece. It was governed by a propraetor with the title of proconsul. Paul was summoned by the vision of the "man of Macedonia" to preach the gospel there (Acts 16:9). Frequent allusion is made to this event (18:5;19:21; Rom. 15:26; 2-Cor 1:16;11:9; Phil. 4:15). The history of Paul's first journey through Macedonia is given in detail in Acts 16:10:15. At the close of this journey he returned from Corinth to Syria. He again passed through this country (20:1), although the details of the route are not given. After many years he probably visited it for a third time (Phil. 2:24; 1-Tim 1:3). The first convert made by Paul in Europe was (Acts 16:13) Lydia (q.v.), a "seller of purple," residing in Philippi, the chief city of the eastern division of Macedonia.
