Greece in the Bible
In Acts 20:2 it designates only the Roman province of Macedonia. Greece was conquered by the Romans in 146 B.C. After passing through various changes, it was erected into an independent monarchy in 1831.
Moses makes mention of Greece under the name of Javan (Genesis 10:2-5); and this name does not again occur in the Old Testament till the time of Joel (3:6). Then the Greeks and Hebrews first came into contact in the Tyrian slave-market.
