Acts 15:2

Context
15:2 When Paul and Barnabas had a major argument and debate 1  with them, the church 2  appointed Paul and Barnabas and some others from among them to go up to meet with 3  the apostles and elders in Jerusalem 4  about this point of disagreement. 5 

1 tn Grk “no little argument and debate” (an idiom).

2 tn Grk “they”; the referent (the church, or the rest of the believers at Antioch) has been specified to avoid confusion with the Judaizers mentioned in the preceding clause.

3 tn Grk “go up to,” but in this context a meeting is implied.

4 map For location see Map5 B1; Map6 F3; Map7 E2; Map8 F2; Map10 B3; JP1 F4; JP2 F4; JP3 F4; JP4 F4.

5 tn Or “point of controversy.” It is unclear whether this event parallels Gal 2:1-10 or that Gal 2 fits with Acts 11:30. More than likely Gal 2:1-10 is to be related to Acts 11:30.
