Acts 11:28-30 The Passion Translation (TPT)

28 One of them, named Agabus, stood up in one of the meetings and prophesied by the Holy Spirit that a severe famine was about to come over Israel. (This prophecy was fulfilled during the reign of Claudius Caesar.)[a] 29 So they determined that each believer, according to his or her ability, would give an offering to send as relief to the brothers living in Judea. 30 They set aside the gifts and entrusted the funds to Barnabas and Saul to take to the elders[b] of the church in Jerusalem.[c]


  1. Acts 11:28 This would have been about AD 45–46.
  2. Acts 11:30 The Aramaic is “priests.”
  3. Acts 11:30 Upon hearing the prophecy of a famine coming, the church of Antioch determined to receive an offering for the Judean believers, for the gospel came to them from Jerusalem. They gave back to the place where the gospel was sent to them.
