Acts 1:17

1:17 for he was counted as one of us and received a share in this ministry.” 1

1:25 to assume the task 2  of this service 3  and apostleship from which Judas turned aside 4  to go to his own place.” 5 

1 tn Or “and was chosen to have a share in this ministry.” The term λαγχάνω (lancanw) here and in 2 Pet 1:1 can be understood as referring to the process of divine choice and thus be translated, “was chosen to have.”

2 tn Grk “to take the place.”

3 tn Or “of this ministry.”

4 tn Or “the task of this service and apostleship which Judas ceased to perform.”

5 sn To go to his own place. This may well be a euphemism for Judas’ judged fate. He separated himself from them, and thus separated he would remain.
