Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 14:21-22

_ _ Acts 14:21-28. Paul and Barnabas retrace their steps, return to Antioch in Syria, and thus complete their first missionary journey.

_ _ and when they had preached ... to that city and had taught many — rather, “had made many disciples” (Margin); but probably without suffering any persecution, as Derbe is not mentioned along with Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra (2 Timothy 3:11).

_ _ they returned ... to Lystra, Iconium, and Antioch, confirming the souls, etc. — At Derbe, Paul was not far from the well-known pass which leads down from the central tableland to Cilicia and Tarsus. But his thoughts did not center in an earthly home. He revisited the places where he had been reviled and persecuted, but where he had left as sheep in the desert the disciples whom his Master had enabled him to gather. They needed building up and strengthening in the faith, comforting in the midst of their inevitable suffering, and fencing round by permanent institutions. Undaunted therefore by the dangers that awaited them, our missionaries return to them, using words of encouragement which none but the founders of a true religion would have ventured to address to their earliest converts, that “we can only enter into the kingdom of God by passing through much tribulation” [Howson].
