(bih ree' uh) Place name meaning, “place of many waters.” City in Macedonia to which Paul escaped after the Jews of Thessalonica rioted (Acts 17:10 ). The Jews searched the Scriptures as Paul preached, and many believed. Jews came from Thessalonica and forced Paul out, and so he continued his second missionary journey. A traveling companion on the last leg of his third journey was Sopater of Berea (Acts 20:4 ). Berea was not situated on the major highways. Surrounded by springs in the plain below Mount Bermion, it was 45 miles west of Thessalonica. It is modern Verria.
