The tradespeople of Ephesus became enraged with Paul since he was teaching how idols/gods made with human hands, often out of silver and gold, were not really divine. They started a riot that ended with Paul being brought before the proconsul (which is a type of governor). The proconsul was more afraid of the rioting than Paul, and so he persuaded the crowd to disperse peacefully. This story is yet another reminder of the importance of being bold in our proclamation of our faith in Jesus Christ.
