  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
  in  New  Testament  times,  was  a  Roman  province  lying  north  of 
  Greece.  It  was  governed  by  a  propraetor  with  the  title  of 
  proconsul.  Paul  was  summoned  by  the  vision  of  the  "man  of 
  Macedonia"  to  preach  the  gospel  there  (Acts  16:9).  Frequent 
  allusion  is  made  to  this  event  (18:5;  19:21;  Rom.  15:26;  2  Cor. 
  1:16;  11:9;  Phil.  4:15).  The  history  of  Paul's  first  journey 
  through  Macedonia  is  given  in  detail  in  Acts  16:10-17:15.  At  the 
  close  of  this  journey  he  returned  from  Corinth  to  Syria.  He 
  again  passed  through  this  country  (20:1-6),  although  the  details 
  of  the  route  are  not  given  After  many  years  he  probably  visited 
  it  for  a  third  time  (Phil.  2:24;  1  Tim.  1:3).  The  first  convert 
  made  by  Paul  in  Europe  was  (Acts  16:13-15)  Lydia  (q.v.),  a 
  "seller  of  purple,"  residing  in  Philippi,  the  chief  city  of  the 
  eastern  division  of  Macedonia.
