The Return to Antioch in Syria
21 They preached the good news in that city and won a large number of disciples. Then they returned to Lystra, Iconium and Antioch, 22 strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith. "We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God," they said. 23 Paul and Barnabas appointed elders for them in each church and, with prayer and fasting, committed them to the Lord, in whom they had put their trust. 24 After going through Pisidia, they came into Pamphylia, 25 and when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down to Attalia.
26 From Attalia they sailed back to Antioch, where they
had been committed to the grace of God for the work they had now
completed. 27 On arriving there, they gathered the church
together and reported all that God had done through them and how he had
opened the door of faith to the Gentiles. 28 And they
stayed there a long time with the disciples.
Travel was even more dangerous in winter.
