ALEXANDRIA TROAS 

Located in the south of Dardanelles, Troas is one of the cities visited by Paul during his second and third missionary trips. During his second missionary trip, after visiting the major cities of Central Anatolia, Paul planned to go towards Asian Province of Roman Empire. He was prevented from doing so by the Holy Sprit. Then he wanted to go to north towards Bythinia, but this time he was stopped by the sprit of Christ. Paul and his companions headed for Troas, a small coastal town of northern Aegean. Paul during his stay at Troas, he had his famous vision. A man from Macedonian asked him to come over and help them. After his vision Paul crossed continent Europe first time. He went to Neapolis and Phillippi where he had his first European Convert, Lydia. Paul came to Troas second time during the first missionary trip after the Silversmith Riot in Ephesus. It is suggested that he stayed there for a while to get a boat to take him to northern Greece. After his time in Greece, instead of getting a boat from Corint to Holly lands, Paul returned to Troas to meet his friends. During his stay in Troas, Paul performed one of his miracles. When a young boy, Euitices, fell from the third floor of a Roman house, he was resurrected by Paul who said: there is still life in him. Although Paul's companions took a ship for Assos, he preferred to walk over the mountains. It is suggested that either he wanted to stay alone or he was afraid of a Jewish plot against him.
