Metaphysical meaning of Achaia (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Achaia (mbd)
Achaia, a-cha'-jå (Gk.)--land of Achaicus; trouble.

A part of, or a province in, Greece (Acts 18:12; 19:21).

Meta. Greece represents the intellect of man, and so Achaia pertains to the intellect. The reasonings of the intellect, apart from the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit, lead to trouble. Divine Mind, not human consciousness, is the one source of true joy and good.
