Berea: A city of Macedonia to which Paul with Silas and Timotheus went when
persecuted at Thessalonica
(Acts 17:10,13) and from which also he was
compelled to withdraw, when he fled to the sea-coast and thence
sailed to Athens
(Acts 17:14,15). Sopater, one of Paul's companions
belonged to this city, and his conversion probably took place at this
(Acts 20:4) It is now called Verria.
