Acts 11:25-26

Context
11:25 Then Barnabas departed for Tarsus to look for Saul, 11:26 and when he found him, he brought him to Antioch. 1  So 2  for a whole year Barnabas and Saul 3  met with the church and taught a significant number of people. 4  Now it was in Antioch 5  that the disciples were first called Christians. 6 

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

2 tn Grk “So it happened that” The introductory phrase ἐγένετο (egeneto, “it happened that”), common in Luke (69 times) and Acts (54 times), is redundant in contemporary English and has not been translated.

3 tn Grk “year they”; the referents (Barnabas and Saul) have been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Grk “a significant crowd.”

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

6 sn The term Christians appears only here, in Acts 26:28, and 1 Pet 4:16 in the NT.
