      At this point in the Acts narrative, all that Luke says is that Paul spent three months “in Greece” (Acts 20:2). When we compare the Acts account with Paul’s statements in 2 Corinthians, the conclusion can be drawn easily that Luke’s “Greece” sojourn is, in fact, Paul’s stay in Corinth after writing 2 Corinthians from somewhere in Macedonia. From the Corinthian correspondence we know that Paul has rendezvoused with Titus in Macedonia and received joyful news of reconciliation with Corinth. Paul is rejoicing as he writes 2 Corinthians to send with Titus back down to Corinth to prepare them for his visit to the church to stay the winter when sea travel was hazardous and the shipping lanes generally closed. As he reconnects with the Corinthian church and renews their fellowship, he has time to reflect upon his gospel, his mission, and his future plans. He present these thoughts in the letter of Romans, generally regarded as the magnum opus of his literary career.
