Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 14:20

_ _ as the disciples stood round about him — sorrowing. So his labors here had not been in vain: “Disciples” had been gathered, who now rallied around the bleeding body. And one appears to have been gained on this occasion, of far more importance than all the rest — Timotheus. See on Acts 16:1-3. (It could scarcely have been at the subsequent visit, Acts 14:21, for the reason given in 2 Timothy 3:10, 2 Timothy 3:11; while at the third visit, Acts 16:1-3, he was already a Christian).

_ _ he rose up — It is possible that this recovery was natural; the insensibility occasioned by such treatment as he had received sometimes passing away of itself, and leaving the patient less hurt than appeared. But certainly the impression naturally left on the mind by the words is that the restoration was miraculous; and so the best interpreters understand the words. This is confirmed by what follows.

_ _ came into the city — Noble intrepidity!

_ _ next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe — a journey for which he could hardly be fit if his recovery had been natural. (As to Derbe, see on Acts 14:6).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 14:19-28.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 14:20

But as the disciples stood round — Probably after sunset. The enraged multitude would scarce have suffered it in the day time: he rose and went into the city — That he should be able to do this, just after he had been left for dead, was a miracle little less than a resurrection from the dead. Especially considering the manner wherein the Jewish malefactors were stoned. The witnesses first threw as large a stone as they could lift, with all possible violence upon his head, which alone was sufficient to dash the skull in pieces. All the people then joined, as long as any motion or token of life remained.
