People's Bible Notes for Acts 14:19


Ac 14:19 [Certain] Jews from Antioch and Iconium. These inveterate opposers followed from the late scenes of gospel triumphs, and found the Lystrians disappointed that they had not been allowed to adore Paul and Barnabas. From one extreme they were easily led to the other. If they were not gods, they were bad men. The fickle populace was easily stirred to riot, and, led by the Jews, they seized and stoned the great apostle until they supposed he was dead. This, the first bodily injury he suffered for Christ, of which we have record, is alluded to in 2Co 11:25, where he gives some account of what he had endured. Having stoned Paul, drew [him] out of the city. After the stoning, his enemies dragged him out of the city as they would a carcass.
