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

  • Irene123
    V. 4 - "And he reasoned ..... "; Isa. 1:18, "Come now, let us reason ..... "; The reasoning - from the scriptures, is what is missing so much on here. People put 'stuff' on here without any scriptural documentation. It's, a lot of, just their opinion, their idea, with no 'proof' from scripture. To those searching for truth, that's not helping.

    God is giving as his own faith to us as a GIFT TO UNDERSTAND AND OBEY HIS MESSAGE HE NEVER GIVES US ANY RISKS GOD'S GRACE AND HIS MERCY ENDURETH FOREVER. FAITH COMES ONLY BY HEARING THE WORDS OF GOD. LET'S PRAISE AND THANKS JESUS FOR THE BLOOD

    Irene123, I agree that Aquila and Priscilla expounded the Scriptures more perfectly from the OT to Apollos. The couple had recently spent much time with the apostle Paul and were no doubt were very familiar with Jesus Christ his crucifixion, death, and resurrection which proved Christ is the messiah which Apollos debated and convinced the uJews publicly
    v28. Glory be to God!

    Crocs, lizards, toads, frogs, these are 'just' MY opinion; I know they don't crawl on their belly, but their bellies DO touch the ground. The Bible does not say - snake.
  • Bud
    Irene123: The other day you made a remark that serpent was not a snake for the are many creatures that crawl on their bellies. Would you let me know what other creature crawls on his belly. Thank you.

    I never saw this before, the connection between this and 1 Cor.1:1 - Sosthenes. In Acts 17:18 which happened before Cor. 1:1, he was a priest in a Jewish synagogue. I guess, after being beaten - he became a Christian or he was a new Christian trying to reach his fellow Jews before being kicked out ..... ?
