Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 17:14

_ _ immediately the brethren — the converts gathered at Berea.

_ _ sent away Paul — as before from Jerusalem (Acts 9:30), and from Thessalonica (Acts 17:10). How long he stayed at Berea we know not; but as we know that he longed and expected soon to return to the Thessalonians (1 Thessalonians 2:17), it is probable he remained some weeks at least, and only abandoned his intention of revisiting Thessalonica at that time when the virulence of his enemies there, stimulated by his success at Berea, brought them down thither to counterwork him.

_ _ to go as it were to the sea — rather, perhaps, “in the direction of the sea.” Probably he delayed fixing his next destination till he should reach the coast, and the providence of God should guide him to a vessel bound for the destined spot. Accordingly, it was only on arriving at Athens, that the convoy of Berean brethren, who had gone thus far with him, were sent back to bid Silas and Timothy follow him thither.

_ _ Silas and Timotheus abode there still — “to build it up in its holy faith, to be a comfort and support in its trials and persecutions, and to give it such organization as might be necessary” [Howson]. Connecting this with the apostle’s leaving Timothy and Luke at Philippi on his own departure (see on Acts 16:40), we may conclude that this was his fixed plan for cherishing the first beginning of the Gospel in European localities, and organizing the converts. Timotheus must have soon followed the apostle to Thessalonica, the bearer, probably, of one of the Philippian “contributions to his necessity” (Philippians 4:15, Philippians 4:16), and from thence he would with Silas accompany him to Berea.
