Trouble in Thessalonica

The Jews who did not believe Paul gathered some bad men in the city to cause trouble. They looked for Paul and Silas in Jason of house. When they could not find them, they took Jason and other Christians to the rulers. They gave a report that they stayed in the house of Jason to do the same in Thessalonica.
