The Church at Antioch

19 aSo then those who were scattered because of the 1persecution that occurred in connection with Stephen made their way 2to bPhoenicia and cCyprus and dAntioch, speaking the word to no one except to Jews alone. 20 But there were some of them, men of aCyprus and bCyrene, who came to cAntioch and began speaking to the 1dGreeks also, 2epreaching the Lord Jesus. 21 And athe hand of the Lord was with them, and ba large number who believed turned to the Lord. 22 The 1news about them 2reached the ears of the church at Jerusalem, and they sent aBarnabas off 3to bAntioch. 23 Then when he arrived and 1witnessed athe grace of God, he rejoiced and began to encourage them all with 2resolute heart to remain true to the Lord; 24 for he was a good man, and afull of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And bconsiderable 1numbers were 2brought to the Lord. 25 And he left for aTarsus to look for Saul; 26 and when he had found him, he brought him to aAntioch. And for an entire year they 1met with the church and taught considerable 2numbers; and bthe disciples were first called cChristians in aAntioch.
