People's Bible Notes for Acts 14:1


Ac 14:1 Missionary Labors in the Cities of Asia Minor SUMMARY OF ACTS 14: Paul and Barnabas at Iconium. Flight to Lystra and Derbe. The Cripple at Lystra Healed. The Heathen Seek to Worship Paul and Barnabas as Gods. A Persecution Raised by the Jews. Paul Stoned Until Supposed to Be Dead. They Return to Visit the New Churches. Elders Ordained. The Return to the Syrian Antioch. The Report of Their Labors. They went . . . into the synagogue of the Jews. Just as in the island of Cyprus and at Antioch (Ac 13:5,14). In almost every principal place a colony of Jews and a synagogue were found. Here, among their own nation, and in accordance with the customs of the synagogue, they spoke, and first declared the gospel. The result seemed uniformly to reach some Jews, and a number of the "devout Greeks" (see PNT "Ac 10:2"") who attended the synagogues to learn more of God. Thus was formed the nucleus of the church. At Iconium, "a great multitude both of the Jews and the Greeks believed".
