Paul Leaves Ephesus and Says Goodbye to the Ephesian Elders
“And after the uproar ceased, Paul having sent for the disciples and exhorted them, took leave of them, and departed to go into Macedonia.” Acts 20:1 ASV
Illustration of Paul being embraced by the disciples on the docks at Ephesus. One kneels at his feet and the others cling to him. His head is surrounded in a glowing light. In the background, sailors can be seen carrying packages on to a boat, filling pails with water, raising the sails, and getting ready for the voyage. The city of Ephesus is visible in the distance.
