People's Bible Notes for Acts 19:1


Ac 19:1 Paul at Ephesus SUMMARY OF ACTS 19: Twelve of John's Disciples Baptized. Paul Teaches in the School of Tyrannus. God's Presence with Paul in Power. Sceva and His Sons. The Books of Magic Burned. Timothy and Erastus Sent into Macedonia. The Tumult Raised by Demetrius and the Craftsmen. The Wise Advice of the City Recorder. Paul having passed through the upper coasts. The mountain highlands of the interior of Asia Minor. See Ac 18:23. Came to Ephesus. Ephesus, on the coast, was near sea level. Finding certain disciples. These disciples had only been baptized with John's baptism (Ac 19:3), and had but an imperfect knowledge of Christ. Their case presents some difficulties hard to explain, unless we had more of the facts. They had evidently been baptized by some of John's disciples, possibly in Asia, after the Great Commission was given, and were no doubt Jews. Some think that they were baptized by Apollos before he was "instructed in the way of the Lord . . . more perfectly" (Ac 18:25,26).

Discussion for Acts 19

  • Peter A. Okebukola
    The Ephesians were initially blind to the gospel, preferring instead, their goddess Diana. God used the town clerk to appease the crowd in the concourse spoiling for a fight. At the end of the day, hearts were won for Christ in Ephesus. We need to stand firm in our faith and keep spreading God's Word regardless of inclement circumstances. God is there to protect. Holy Spirit is there to guide.

    Acts 19:6 6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. Apollo and some of the Disciples could not get the Holy Spirit to come about them, so Paul made it happen with his strong Faith. Paul was getting stronger in the Lord. The Chosen one from Jesus.

    ACTS 19:27 SO THAT NOT ONLY THIS OUR CRAFT IS IN DANGER TO BE SET AT NOUGHT BUT ALSO THE TEMPLE OF THE GREAT GODDESS DIANA SHOULD BE DESPISED AND HER MAGNIFICENCE SHOULD BE DESTROYED WHOM ALL ASIA AND THE WORLD WORSHIPPETH

    ACTS 19:19 MANY OF THEM ALSO WHICH USED CURIOUS ARTS BROUGHT THEIR BOOKS TOGETHER AND BURNED THEM BEFORE ALL MEN AND THEY COUNTED THE PRICE OF THEM AND FOUND IT FIFTY THOUSAND PIECES OF SILVER **** 19:20 SO MIGHTILY GREW THE WORD OF GOD AND PREVAILED**** EPHESIANS 2:9 NOT BY WORKS LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST

    To Mikey Hall.

    The Evil Spirit said Jesus I know, Paul I know but who are you..

    He said this because He knew exactly who has the Power and Authority over him to command him to come out...

    Those who have that Power and Authority are those who Believe and Receive Jesus Christ in Spirit and are Born Again of the Spirit of God John 3

    These exorcists were Spiritually Dead and the Spirit knew.
