THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES

CHAPTER 14


GREAT COMMISSION ACTS

Greetings everyone, and welcome back to Daily Bread. We're following Paul's first missionary journey as he brings the Good News of Jesus to the Gentiles, and we pick up our study today with Paul and Barnabas in Iconium. The city that was then called Iconium, is now in modern day Turkey. Imagine all the traveling these guys did ... It must have taken them weeks to get from one place to another. Many times they traveled by boat but mostly by foot.

GREAT COMMISSION ACTS STUDY ON GREAT COMMISSION ACTS LESSON WITH GREAT COMMISSION ACTS MESSAGE

They went together into the Jewish synagogue there and a great number of both the Jewish and the Greeks believed. But the unbelieving Jewish people stirred up the Gentiles, and made their souls bitter against Barnabas and Paul. So they remained there a long time, speaking boldly in the name of the Lord, and God spoke through them, giving testimony to the Word of His Grace, and allowed them to show signs and miracles with their hands. Most of the city, however was divided, and part of them listened to the Jewish people, and part believed the apostles.

Daily Bread Crumb time! In the Gospels, the term apostle is used to identify one of Jesus' twelve original disciples. Those twelve were the closest to Jesus of anyone, and were appointed by Him to be His apostles. The word apostle here, and elsewhere in the New Testament refers to those sent on a mission to preach the gospel, so that's why Luke is referring to Barnabas and Paul as apostles, and in Paul's writings you'll find that Paul refers to himself as an apostle. An apostle therefore is one assigned the task of preaching the Word. In short ... A Shepherd.

The unbelieving Gentiles and the Jewish people with their rulers planned to abuse them in hostility and stone them, but they were aware of it, so they fled to Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia and into the region surrounding, and they preached the Gospel there. (These cities all are in what is now modern day Turkey.)

GREAT COMMISSION ACTS DISCUSSION WITH GREAT COMMISSION ACTS EXPLANATION

In Lystra there was a man, lame on his feet, being crippled since birth, and had never walked. He heard Paul speak, and Paul, intently watching him and seeing that he had faith to be healed, said loudly, Stand up on your feet. And he leaped and walked. When the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in their own language, The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men.

They called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius, (Mercury) because he was the chief speaker. (These people apparently worshiped planets.) Then the priest of Jupiter, who was outside the city gates, brought oxen and garlands to the gates, and wanted to offer sacrifice with the people. Of course, the apostles didn't know the language of the people, so they had no idea that they were planning to offer sacrifice to them instead of God. When Barnabas and Paul learned about it, they were so upset that they tore their clothes, and ran in among the people, crying out, and saying, Sirs, why are you doing these things? We also are men, just like you, and preach to you that you should turn away from these worthless things (idol worship) to the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are in them: (including the planets) Who in the past allowed all nations to walk in their own ways. Nevertheless He made Himself known. In that, He did good, and He gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness. By saying these things, they barely stopped the people, so they wouldn't sacrifice to them.

Then certain Jewish people from Antioch and Iconium came there and persuaded the people against them, and these same people that wanted to worship him stoned Paul, and dragged him out of the city, presuming that he was dead. But, as the disciples stood around him, he rose up, and came into the city: and the next day he left with Barnabas to Derbe.

When they had preached the Gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch, strengthening the souls of the new disciples, and urging them to continue in the faith, and teaching them that we must endure a lot of tribulation to enter into the kingdom of God. They appointed elders for them in every church, and prayed and fasted with them, then they commended them to the Lord, in whom they believed. (They were setting up Spiritual Churches in different regions).

GREAT COMMISSION ACTS INFORMATION WITH GREAT COMMISSION ACTS MEANING

After that, they passed throughout Pisidia, and they came to Pamphylia. And when they had preached the Word in Perga, they went down into Attalia, and from there they sailed to Antioch, from where they had been commissioned to the grace of God for the work that they fulfilled. (Be sure to check out the C-O-O-L Bible Maps as to find out where all these cities are!) When they arrived, and had gathered the church together, they told all about what God had done with and for them, and how He had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles. And they remained there a long time with the disciples.

That was some eventful journey, wouldn't you say? You have to give Paul credit, and pray for the kind of devotion he had. Many people being stoned to the point of being left for dead would put up their hands, shake their head and say, This job isn't for me. In fact, many Christians today find peer pressure enough opposition to let their Faith be less than enthusiastic. We should be more like Paul and ask ourselves, Do I need to pick myself up, dust myself off, and charge in once again with even more fervor for the Lord? Then give yourself an emphatic, YES, and with prayer and newly strengthened faith, (which we need daily) go do something significant for the Lord.

When we come back, we'll discover more adventures of the apostles, right here at Daily Bread. Be sure to join in for more fun and fellowship!
