“Which when the brethren knewe, they brought him downe to Cesarea, and sent him foorth to Tarsus.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
Ac 9:30 They brought him down to Caesarea. The same class of Jews who had raised the persecution against Stephen now sought the death of Saul. By the aid of the brethren he was taken to the seaport of Caesarea and sailed for his old home at Tarsus. Some think, however, from Ga 1:21, that the journey was made by land through Syria. It is more likely that he sailed from Caesarea to Seleucia in Syria, and from thence made his way to Tarsus. Sent him forth to Tarsus. Four or five years pass before the next mention of Saul in Ac 12:25, an interval passed in preaching Christ (Ga 1:22,23), and resulting in the planting of churches in Cilicia (Ac 15:23,41).
