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 

Acts 15:6

Context

15:6 Both the apostles and the elders met together to deliberate 6  about this matter.

Acts 15:22

Context

15:22 Then the apostles and elders, with the whole church, decided 7  to send men chosen from among them, Judas called Barsabbas and Silas, 8  leaders among the brothers, to Antioch 9  with Paul and Barnabas.

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.

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.

6 tn The translation for ἰδεῖν (idein) in this verse is given by BDAG 279-80 s.v. εἶδον 3 as “deliberate concerning this matter.” A contemporary idiom would be to “look into” a matter.

7 tn BDAG 255 s.v. δοκέω 2.b.β lists this verse under the meaning “it seems best to me, I decide, I resolve.”

8 sn Silas. See 2 Cor 1:19; 1 Thess 1:1; 2 Thess 1:1 (= Silvanus).

9 sn Antioch was a city in Syria (not Antioch in Pisidia).
