Thessalonica was a bustling seaport city at the head of the Thermaic Gulf (see map, p. It was an important communication and trade center, located at the junction of the great Egnatian Way and the road leading north to the Danube.It was the largest city in Macedonia and was also the capital of its province.Although maybe it should be obvious, could you make explicit what you see as the potential conflict to be reconciled?
I'll let the folks over here decide whether it's on topic here.
Regardless, I feel like I don't have quite enough information to understand what the question is.
He was very well-connected, and he would have been aware of the Gospels quickly after they began to be written, and the fact his epistles from the 50s don’t quote them suggests that they either weren’t in circulation or were only coming into circulation. When it came time to write his Gospel, he likely used the Pauline version of the words of institution that he was familiar with. 54-55, and some have interpreted this passage as referring to the author of one of the written Gospels (if so, it would almost certainly be Mark).
This isn’t a conclusive argument, because early Christians like Paul often relied on oral tradition rather than direct quotation from the New Testament, but the fact Paul’s epistles from the 50s never clearly refer to the Gospels is at least suggestive. I should note that there are some possible exceptions to the above. 53, but this passage probably is not a quotation from Luke’s Gospel. Luke was a travelling companion of Paul (Acts -17, 20:5-15, 21:1-8, 27:1-; cf. “The Brother Whose Praise Is in the Gospel” Second, Paul makes a mysterious reference in 2 Corinthians to a “brother whose praise is in the gospel” (literal translation). However, the passage is ambiguous, and we can’t be confident of this.
Paul was an extraordinarily well-traveled and well-connected apostle, as we will see, and if anyone would have known about the existence of written accounts of Jesus’ life, it would have been him. He does echo a lot of things we find in the Gospels, but that could be due—and likely is due—to his use of oral tradition about Jesus.
