The Thirty Years' War (1618-1648)

The 17th century almost began with the 30 years' war between the Protestants and Catholics at first. But it turned out to be more a political conflict. However after the war there was more of a focus on science and philosophy.

When Paul went to Thessalonica in Acts 17, due to their lack of knowledge of scripture, even though some believed, both Jews and Gentiles, the unbelieving Jews caused the unbelieving Gentiles to begin a riot. The conflict became serious that Paul had to flee without teaching further. He found himself in Athens after Berea and eventually reasoned with the philosophers from their poets.

The 30 years war also relates to the 30th book of the bible, Amos because there were cities set on fire as Catholics threw protestant babies in the fire as Bruce Gore mentioned in his video below (but will check if it is written somewhere).

It is also linked to 1Samuel 30 and the 8th epistle 1Thessalonians as the epistle was written to them while they were in conflict in Acts 17.
