The return to Antioch to rest after the first trip

Acts 14:21-28. AD49-AD50, with the start of planning the second trip starting at Acts 15:36-40.

Paul reports back to his sending church all the things that happened.

Paul worked hard between trip one and trip two.

Paul then was asked to give a report to the elders in Jerusalem. While there he got involved with important discussions about non-Jewish believers who had come to the Messiah or Christ.

Background Reading:

Paul and Barnabas Return to Antioch in Syria

14:21 As they were proclaiming the good news in that city, they discipled a large number of people. Then they went back to Lystra, Iconium, and Antioch, 22 strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to continue in the faith. “We must endure many hardships,” they said, “to get into the kingdom of God.” 23 Paul and Barnabas appointed elders for them in each church, and with prayer and fasting they entrusted them to the Lord in whom they had believed. 24 Then they passed through Pisidia and came to Pamphylia. 25 They spoke the word in Perga and went down to Attalia. 26 From there they sailed back to Antioch, where they had been entrusted to the grace of God for the work they had completed. 27 When they arrived, they called the church together and told them everything that God had done with them and how he had opened a door so that gentiles would believe. 28 Then they spent a long time with the disciples.
