Paul returns to Jerusalem

Acts 18:18      Paul leaves Corinth with Aquila and Pricilla and sails from Cenchraea (the Aegian port of Corinth) to Ephesus (see 6 on Map 24).

Acts 18:19-21 Paul preaches in the synagogue at Ephesus and is encouraged to stay longer. But he wants to get back to Jerusalem before the end of the sailing season (the beginning of November), so he leaves Aquila and Pricilla in Ephesus, promises to return at a later date, and sets sail for Caesarea (see 7 on Map 24).
