Acts 11:20

Context
11:20 But there were some men from Cyprus 1  and Cyrene 2  among them who came 3  to Antioch 4  and began to speak to the Greeks 5  too, proclaiming the good news of the Lord Jesus.

1 sn Cyprus was a large island in the Mediterranean off the south coast of Asia Minor.

2 sn Cyrene was a city on the northern African coast west of Egypt.

3 tn Grk “among them, coming to Antioch began to speak.” The participle ἐλθόντες (elqonte") has been translated as a finite verb due to requirements of contemporary English style.

4 sn Antioch was a city in Syria (not Antioch in Pisidia). See the note in 11:19.

5 sn The statement that some men from Cyprus and Cyrene…began to speak to the Greeks shows that Peter’s experience of reaching out to the Gentiles was not unique.
