Lydia, originally from Thyatira, but now settled in Philippi, was probably a Gentile convert to Judaism.[8] She was a wealthy businesswoman—she dealt in expensive purple fabric—and so Lydia may have been a patron of the Jewish community. Being a patron was an influential role in Roman society and its institutions.

Other Jewish women in. The Apostle Paul first encountered Lydia at Philippi, in eastern Macedonia. She was a "worshiper of God," probably a proselyte, or convert to Judaism. Because ancient Philippi had no synagogue, the few Jews in that city gathered on the bank of the Krenides River for sabbath worship where they could use the water for ritual washings.

Since Lydia’s clientele would have been composed of rich people, it is likely she was a well-to-do lady cultured in proper manners. In contrast to Lydia is the Philippian jailer.

Lydia apparently had moved to Philippi to ply her trade in that city. Amid all this political pomp, however, the New Testament book of Acts and Paul’s letter to the Philippians spotlight three named woman and one man as the real heroes of Philippi, renowned for their pioneering and courageous service to Christ and the church.
