Bible Commentary for Acts 14:20

Wesley's Notes for Acts 14:20


14:20 But as the disciples stood round - Probably after sunset. The enraged multitude would scarce have suffered it in the day time: he rose and went into the city - That he should be able to do this, just after he had been left for dead, was a miracle little less than a resurrection from the dead. Especially considering the manner wherein the Jewish malefactors were stoned. The witnesses first threw as large a stone as they could lift, with all possible violence upon his head, which alone was sufficient to dash the skull in pieces. All the people then joined, as long as any motion or token of life remained.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 14:20


Ac 14:20 As the disciples stood round about him. When Paul's enemies had gone, the disciples gathered around, and to their joy and surprise he rose up, and came into the city. Whether he had received a blow that rendered him unconscious and apparently dead, until he recovered from the swoon, or whether his restoration was miraculous, cannot be surely determined. The next day he departed with Barnabas. As commanded by Christ (Mt 10:14 Mr 6:11 Lu 9:5), when persecuted in one city, they departed and came the next day to Derbe, to labor for a time.
