Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 19:21-22.


Acts 19:22

_ _ So he sent into Macedonia ... Timotheus and Erastus — as his pioneers, in part to bring “them into remembrance of his ways which were in Christ” (1 Corinthians 4:17; 1 Corinthians 16:10), partly to convey his mind on various matters. After a brief stay he was to return (1 Corinthians 16:11). It is very unlikely that this Erastus was “the chamberlain of the city” of Corinth, of that name (Romans 16:23).

_ _ he himself stayed in — the province of

_ _ Asia for a season — that is, at Ephesus, its chief city. (Asia is mentioned in contrast with Macedonia in the previous clause).
