“And forasmuch as Lydda was nigh to Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there, they sent unto him two men, desiring him that he would not delay to come to them.”
King James Version (KJV)
9:38 The disciples sent to him - Probably none of those at Joppa had the gift of miracles. Nor is it certain that they expected a miracle from him.
Ac 9:38 They sent unto him two men. The fame of his miracles was so well known that they probably hoped that he might restore her to life.
