Why were Paul's Missionary Journeys so important?
The importance of Paul's 'missionary journeys' must be
established from Acts of the Apostles since, as Raymond E. Brown
(An Introduction to the New Testament) says, the three
journeys are only a convenient classification developed by students
of Acts. In his undisputed letters Paul gives us no
information about the first missionary journey, and Acts actually
seems to contradict Paul's own account of his itinerary. Even the
subsequent journeys in Acts seem problematic when compared
with Paul's epistles, although some scholars see scope for them to
have been historical. Given their absence from Paul's own account,
and without confirmation from any other source, the three
missionary journeys of Acts can not be considered
From a theological perspective, the journey to Cyprus was important, because it demonstrated Paul's extraordinary ability to perform the miracle of harming Elymas (bar-Jesus) by depriving him of his sight for a season. Paul himself had never mentioned the journey to Cyprus and never claimed to be capable of performing miracles. From the epistles alone it seems that Paul had not sought to cause others any harm in the course of his mission.
In his undisputed letters Paul never mentions the missionary journeys. He definitely gives us no information consistent with the first missionary journey and only sparse and contradictory information about the second and third missionary journeys described in Acts of the Apostles. In fact, Raymond E. Brown (An Introduction to the New Testament) says the the three journeys are only a convenient classification developed by students of Acts. The three missionary journeys were probably added to… Read More
Paul's missionary journeys are considered important because through his travels he spread the gospel and planted churches. I don't think you can say they were the most important, other people also took the gospel from Jerusalem to different parts of the world. Paul's journeys are well documented so we know about them.
Four He made 4 because he went to rome and sapin and then back to rome so I would include that as his 4rth journey.

Sailing with the wind in their backs made the journeys ever so much easier and faster.
The three missionary journeys attributed to Paul are a convenient classification developed by students of Acts, whereas Paul's own epistles make no direct mention of them. In fact, his undisputed letters gives us no information about the first missionary journey, instead leading us on a quite different itinerary. He never even mentions the miracle in which Acts says he blinded Elymas the sorcerer and thereby converted Sergius Paulus, the deputy of the country, although he… Read More

Paul is very important, he started the early churches, and wrote most books in the new testament. He was shipwrecked on his missionary journey as well.
There are couple of reasons. Ephesus was an ancient city of Greek Asia Minor in present-day western Turkey. Its temple, dedicated to Artemis, or in Roman times Diana, was one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Also, Saint Paul visited the city on his missionary journeys.
It depends on the church the missionary comes from. You'll have to ask the missionary what their title is. Some missionaries are refered to as brother, sister, elder, pastor, etc. When in doubt, address male missionaries as 'brother so-and-so' and female missionaries 'sister so-and-so'.

The correct phrase would be "on your journeys" when talking about being on a trip or traveling. For example: You have taken many photos on your journeys. However, you can say "at your journey's end". For example: Be sure to take many photos so you can share them at your journey's end.
He was a Jesuit missionary, converting the Huron. He was caught in a Huron-Iroquois war, and was martyred by the Iroquois in Canada on March 16, 1649.
Maybe some are, but a good missionary would know that all people are equal in the eyes of God and all have sinned. So to think that your own ethnic or cultural group is centrally important, and that all other groups are measured in relation to your own (ethnocentricity) is not correct thinking, especially for a missionary

If Christians continue to realize the importance of missionary work, we will continue to expand in the number of missionaries that are already, well, missionaries. This will have an impact on mostly the people in the 3rd world who need help. As a result, mission work will become so important that the working conditions will improve. Missionaries will no longer have to worry about where their money is coming from because there are already so… Read More

Saul had been actively persecuting Christians. He was blinded by the light on the road to Damascus, and Jesus identified himself. As Saul was a very religious man, he had no difficulty in praying, so was praying to God and repentant of what he had done. God sent Ananias to restore Saul's sight, and Saul started to expound the very Jesus he had been trying to stamp out. After some years, he became Paul and… Read More
It's possible, although it's more likely that you have a crush. Unfortunately, Mormon missionaries are not allowed to date or even be alone with someone other than their assigned missionary companion. So if you are in love with a Mormon Missionary, you'll have to wait until his/her mission is over to do anything about it.
This is not normally done. Another missionary will take over from the one transfered. If the investigator refuses the new Missionaries, this only indicates that their interest lay in the Missionary and not in his message. All missionaries go where they are called to go, even if they are in the middle of a discussion with an investigator.

The book of Acts is also referred to as the "Acts of the Apostles." Simply put, Acts follows the apostles through the first 60 or so years of spreading the gospel throughout Israel and the Mediterranean. It begins with Jesus commanding his followers to take the gospel throughout the world and then with Jesus ascending (returning) to heaven. The apostles then receive power through the Baptism of the Spirit. From this point on are the… Read More

Paul himself never mentioned ever having been known by a different name, although he could not have hidden the fact if it was true. On the other hand, Acts of the Apostles, written anonymously some decades later, says that his name was changed from Saul to Paul during his first missionary journey. Again, Paul never mentions that first missionary journey and his own account of his itinerary seems to rule out the possibility of that… Read More
