People's Bible Notes for Acts 20:1


Ac 20:1 The Second Visit to Europe and Return SUMMARY OF ACTS 20: Paul Departs to Macedonia. And to Greece. Paul at Troas. The Meeting on the First Day of the Week to Break Bread. To Miletus. The Meeting with the Elders of the Church at Ephesus. Paul's Affectionate Warnings. The Sorrowful Farewell. After the uproar was ceased. It had been his purpose to go into Macedonia (Ac 19:21), but to remain at Ephesus until after Pentecost (1Co 16:8), and that time (about the middle of May, A.D. 57 or 58) had probably come. Hence, having "exhorted" the disciples (Revised Version), he departed. It was on his way to Greece that Second Corinthians was written. He speaks in 2Co 12:14 13:1 of coming "the third time" to Corinth. Hence, Hackett supposes that during the three years at Ephesus he made a flying visit to Corinth by sea to correct disorders in the church there.
