The Return to Antioch in Syria

Daily Verse Reading – Acts 14:19-28tumblr_lvcvlgun9o1qbhp9xo1_1280

19 Then some Jews from Antioch and Iconium came there and persuaded the crowds. They stoned Paul and dragged him out of the city, supposing he was dead. 20 But as the disciples gathered around him, he rose up and went into the city. The next day he departed with Barnabas for Derbe.

21 When they had preached the gospel to that city and had made many disciples, they returned to Lystra and to Iconium and to Antioch, 22 strengthening the minds of the disciples and exhorting them to continue in the faith, to go through many afflictions and thus enter the kingdom of God. 23 When they had appointed elders for them in every church, with prayer and fasting, they commended them to the Lord in whom they believed. 24 Then they passed throughout Pisidia and came to Pamphylia, 25 and when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down into Attalia.

26 From there they sailed to Antioch, where they had been commended to the grace of God for the work which they had completed. 27 When they arrived and had assembled the church, they reported what God had done through them and how He had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles. 28 And there they stayed a long time with the disciples.
