Acts 13 - IVP New Testament Commentaries
The First Missionary Journey
The first missionary journey presents in microcosm all the main features of Paul's missionary call (9:15-16). Paul does indeed carry Christ's name "before the Gentiles and their kings" (14:27; 13:7-12, 46-48; 14:8-18) and "before the people of Israel" (13:14-41). He does suffer for that name (14:5, 19).
