Acts 18:23

Context
18:23 After he spent 3  some time there, Paul left and went through the region of Galatia 4  and Phrygia, 5  strengthening all the disciples.

1 tn Or “proclaimed.”

sn All the prophets…have spoken about and announced. What Peter preaches is rooted in basic biblical and Jewish hope as expressed in the OT scriptures.

2 tn Or “to them in logical sequence,” “to them in order.” BDAG 490 s.v. καθεξῆς has “explain to someone point by point” for this phrase. This is the same term used in Luke 1:3.

3 tn Grk “Having spent”; the participle ποιήσας (poihsas) is taken temporally.

4 sn Galatia refers to either (1) the region of the old kingdom of Galatia in the central part of Asia Minor, or (2) the Roman province of Galatia, whose principal cities in the 1st century were Ancyra and Pisidian Antioch. The exact extent and meaning of this area has been a subject of considerable controversy in modern NT studies.

5 sn Phrygia was a district in central Asia Minor west of Pisidia. See Acts 16:6.
