“But Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles, and declared unto them how he had seen the Lord in the way, and that he had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of Jesus.”
King James Version (KJV)
9:27 To the apostles - Peter and James, Gal. i, 18, 19. #Gal 1:18|,19 And declared - He who has been an enemy to the truth ought not to be trusted till he gives proof that he is changed.
Ac 9:27 Barnabas took him. Barnabas was a Hellenist (Ac 4:36), like Saul. When he vouched for him to the apostles, their distrust ended. Paul gives an account of this visit to the apostles in Ga 1:18.
