1 tn Grk “In these days,” but the dative generally indicates a specific time.
2 tn The word “some” is not in the Greek text, but is usually used in English when an unspecified number is mentioned.
3 sn Prophets are mentioned only here and in 13:1 and 21:10 in Acts.
4 sn Came down from Jerusalem. Antioch in Syria lies due north of Jerusalem. In Western languages it is common to speak of north as “up” and south as “down,” but the NT maintains the Hebrew idiom which speaks of any direction away from Jerusalem as down (since Mount Zion was thought of in terms of altitude).
