Douglas Campbell has advanced a detailed reconstruction of Paul’s possible movements from late 36 through late 37. According to this reconstruction, Paul fled Damascus under King Aretas (2 Cor 11:32–33) in late 36 and then met with Sergius Paulus on Cyprus (Acts 13:7) by the end of 37, or at latest early 38. This study aims to evaluate whether this reconstruction can be affirmed as plausible. Although the reconstruction is not impossible given the current state of the data, it is sufficiently improbable that it ought to be rejected.
