People's Bible Notes for Acts 18:9


Ac 18:9 The spake the Lord to Paul. In some way he manifested his presence and cheered him in his work, by the assurance of great success. We know that the result was not only a flourishing church in Corinth, to which two epistles were written, but churches through Achaia, the province of which Corinth was the capital (2Co 1:1).

Discussion for Acts 18

    To Andrew, v. 24, 1 26 '15 - Apollos did know the O.T. all TRUE Jews did but there may have been a few N.T. scriptures circulating at his time but the N.T. wasn't even begun in writing until at least 15 yrs. after the start of the N.T. church in Acts ch. 2. Aquila Priscilla expounded the scriptures more perfectly all this could very well have been from just the O.T.
  • Irene123
