- Acts 11:19-12:25
- Acts 11:19 – Antioch of Syria was one of two cities named Antioch mentioned in the New Testament. All three of Paul’s preaching trips started here and the first two ended here (Acts 13:1-2; 15:35-36; 18:22-23).
- Acts 11:26 – See Acts 26:28. Agrippa uses the term “Christian” and Paul doesn’t take any offense. I Peter 4:16 indicates that this is an approved name for followers of Christ. Can people tell that I am a Christian?
- Acts 11:27-30 – The brethren collected money and sent it to elders of the church to be helped. Notice that the money was specifically for relief of the saints and it was sent directly to the elders. There was no intermediary church involved. We see this same pattern in all cases of churches sending relief to needy saints.
- Acts 12:2 – James was the first apostle to be martyred.
- Acts 12:20-25 – Herod was smitten by God because of his pride.
