Paul got a violent reaction, so he moved next door! I'd have gone farther. He only had to move next door to get to the Gentiles. And. . . the synagogue leader came to Christ.
We cannot miss the providential relationship with some other tent makers who, haveing been with Paul are able to explain more clearly the gospel to Apollos. I'm amazed at the Sovereign Hand behind the scenes in building this web of relationships, to take care of His church. A decree form Claudius put Priscilla and Aquila in Corinth. And, they have just the right career to land next to the Apostle. Apollos happened into town when they were ready to talk with him. God gets the right people where He wants them.
"There are many people to me in this city. I am with you." It would make a huge difference in your ability to persever if you hade that direct word!
