Acts 36 The Church in Antioch Acts 11:19-30

Luke now goes back to a time after the scattering of believers following the death of Stephen, some of whom had travelled to Phoenicia, Cyprus, and Antioch. Some of those who went to Antioch preached Jesus to Gentiles, and a great number of them believed.

Acts 12:1–5 James Killed and Peter Imprisoned

Herod Agrippa 1 ruled from AD 41–44 and considered himself Jewish and attended the morning and evening sacrifices at the temple regularly. His desire to please the Jews resulted in his persecution of the followers of Jesus in Jerusalem. He killed the apostle, James Zebedee, with “the sword,” and arrested Peter, placed him in ‘maximum’ security with 16 soldiers guarding. Meanwhile the “church” was praying for him.

Acts 12:6–25 Peter is Rescued and the Death of Herod

An angel of the Lord rescues Peter without the sixteen Roman guards even being aware of it. Peter heads for the home of Mary where believers are present and when inside Peter requests that “James and the brothers” be told about what happened then leaves to parts unknown. Then follows the story of Herod, who falls prey to a terrible illness, only described as “eaten by worms,” a common idiom meaning dying badly due to an invasive disease

Acts 13:1-12 Barnabas and Saul Sent Off and Barnabas and Saul on Cyprus

At Antioch were prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Saul, a black man from North Africa, an Arab, and a Roman; thus the diversity of the early church. The Holy Spirit calls Barnabas and Saul to that which “I have called them.” Off the two go to Cyprus, and run into a Jewish false prophet named Elymas, meaning magician opposes them, and Saul miraculously causes the magician to go blind. This event has a major impact on proconsul Sergius Paulus, and Luke reports that he “believed.”

Acts 13:13–33 Paul and Barnabas in Antioch of Pisidia

Paul and his companions left Cyprus and arrived at Perga in Pamphylia (modern day Turkey) and from Perga they went to Antioch in Pisidia. The missionaries visit the synagogue in Antioch and are invited to speak. Paul then proceeds to preach a sermon showing how the Old Testament looked forward to someone in the line of David to be the Savior/Messiah and that John the Baptist, who was widely considered a prophet, pointed to Jesus as the long awaited Savior.

Acts 13:13–33 Paul and Barnabas in Antioch of Pisidia

Acts 41 Paul and Barnabas in Antioch of Pisidia part 2 Acts 13:34–43

Paul speaks to a mostly Jewish audience and quotes from the Hebrew Bible passages about resurrection: Psalm 2, Isaiah 53:3, and Psalm 16:10. David died and saw corruption (of his body), but Jesus rose from the dead, and His body did not experience corruption. And in Jesus there is forgiveness of sin, which forms the core of Paul’s message. The Law of Moses serves to show us our condition, which is hopeless. The power of the Holy Spirit is present as the hearers “beg” to hear more.

Acts 41 Paul and Barnabas in Antioch of Pisidia part 2 Acts 13:34–43

Book of Acts 13:44–52

That next Sabbath Day a large crowd gathers to hear the apostles present the Gospel message with boldness despite dangers. Paul always went to his Jewish brethren first then to the Gentiles, as we see in Romans 1:16. The Gentiles hear and rejoice, and “as many as were appointed to eternal life believed.” More and more then hear the Gospel message around that region, which provokes more opposition. Still, the new believers are filled with “joy and the Holy Spirit.”

Book of Acts: Paul and Barnabas at Iconium

Iconium is 80 miles from Antioch of Pisidia in the Roman province of Galatia. The apostles are not discouraged, though forced out of Antioch. Traveling the Roman road to Iconium, they go first to the synagogue and “speak in such a way” that many believe in Jesus as Messiah. Opposition again arises. Still they remain for a long time and boldly present the Gospel. Hearing of a plot to stone them, the apostles flee Lystra and Derby, cities of Lycaonia, preaching along the way.

Book of Acts 14:8-23 Paul and Barnabas at Lystra

In Lystra Paul and Barnabas encounter a man lame from birth, and he is healed. The locals think the two are Zeus and Hermes and begin to honor them as such, preparing to offer sacrifices. Paul presents a sermon focused on the grace of God in the creation. Opponents arrive and stir up the crowds. Paul is stoned but recovers miraculously, and they leave Lystra for Derbe, 60 miles away. After preaching there awhile, they return to the churches in Lystra, Iconium, and Antioch and appoint elders.
