Bible Commentary for Acts 21:4

Wesley's Notes for Acts 21:4


21:4 And finding disciples, we tarried there seven days - ln order to spend a Sabbath with them. Who told Paul by the Spirit - That afflictions awaited him at Jerusalem. This was properly what they said by the Spirit. They themselves advised him not to go up. The disciples seemed to understand their prophetic impulse to be an intimation from the Spirit, that Paul, if he were so minded, might avoid the danger, by not going to Jerusalem.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 21:4


Ac 21:4 Finding disciples. Preachers of the word came to Phoenicia, of which Tyre was the capital, and probably planted the church (Ac 11:19). Tarried there seven days. As this statement is made three times where Paul found brethren (Ac 20:6 21:4 28:14), it evidently implies that he tarried at each place to have one solemn meeting on the first day of the week, as at Troas (Ac 20:7), and to celebrate the Lord's Supper with the church. Said to Paul through the Spirit. Predicted the sufferings that would befall him, and endeavored to dissuade him.
