Kisah 20


Acts 20:1

After the uproar had ceased, Paul sent for the disciples, and when he had exhorted them and taken his leave of them, he left to go to Macedonia.

He left. Perhaps no one faced more persecution than the Apostle Paul and his standard response was to walk away, keep moving, and keep preaching. See kemasukan for Acts 14:20.


Kisah Para Rasul 20:21

dengan sungguh-sungguh memberi kesaksian kepada orang Yahudi dan orang Yunani tentang pertobatan terhadap Allah dan iman kepada Tuhan kita Yesus Kristus.

(a) Taubat kepada Tuhan. Dalam perjanjian baru, pertaubatan biasanya digambarkan sebagai kembali atau berpaling kepada Tuhan (lihat kemasukan for Acts 26:20).

(b) iman and repentance are two sides of the same coin. Repentance is what happens when we first change our minds about the goodness of God (Rom. 2:4); faith is being persuaded that God is good and trustworthy.


Acts 20:22

“And now, behold, bound by the Spirit, I am on my way to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there,

(a) Bound by the Spirit. In the natural, a visit to the world’s most religious city might not have seemed like a good idea for the apostle of grace, yet Paul felt compelled in his spirit to go to Jerusalem.

(b) What will happen to me there. Paul did not know what would happen to him when he got back to that hostile city, but the Holy Spirit showed him (Acts 21:11).


Kisah Para Rasul 20:24

“Tetapi aku tidak menganggap nyawaku sebagai sesuatu yang berharga bagi diriku sendiri, supaya aku dapat menyelesaikan perjalananku dan pelayanan yang telah kuterima dari Tuhan Yesus, untuk bersaksi dengan sungguh-sungguh tentang Injil kasih karunia Allah.

(a) Injil revealed in the Bible goes by several names. There is the gospel of Jesus Christ (Mark 1:1) or the gospel of Christ (Rom. 15:19, 1 Cor. 9:12, 2 Cor. 2:12, 9:13, 10:14, Gal. 1:7, Php. 1:27, 1 Th. 3:2). There is the gospel of God (Mark 1:14, Rom 1:1, 15:16, 2 Cor. 11:7, 1 Th. 2:2, 8, 9, 1 Pet. 4:17), gospel of the blessed God (1 Tim. 1:11), and the gospel of his Son (Rom 1:9). There is the gospel of the kingdom (Matt. 4:23, 9:35, 24:14, Luke 16:16), and the gospel of the glory of Christ (2 Cor. 4:4). These are different labels for the one and only gospel of the grace of God. See kemasukan untuk Injil.

(b) Injil kasih karunia Tuhan. Rahmat Tuhanlah yang membuat berita baik, berita baik.

The gospel of grace or the word of grace (Acts 20:32) is synonymous with the gospel of Jesus (2 Th. 1:8) or the word of Christ (Rom. 10:17) for Jesus is the embodiment of the Father’s grace (see kemasukan for 1 Cor. 1:4).

Kisah Para Rasul 20:29

“Aku tahu bahawa sesudah aku pergi, serigala-serigala yang ganas akan masuk di antara kamu, tidak menyayangkan kawanan;

People can be led astray by false teachers. Sadly, Paul’s warning came true with the likes of Hymeneus and Philetus who upset the faith of some (2 Tim 2:17-18).


Kisah Para Rasul 20:32

“Dan sekarang aku menyerahkan kamu kepada Allah dan kepada firman kasih karunia-Nya, yang berkuasa membangun kamu dan memberikan kepadamu warisan di antara semua orang yang dikuduskan.

(a) Firman rahmatNya adalah sinonim dengan injil rahmat; lihat kemasukan for Acts 20:24.

(b) Mereka yang disucikan. Kristian, dengan kata lain. Lihat kemasukan for Acts 26:18.


Acts 20:37

And they began to weep aloud and embraced Paul, and repeatedly kissed him,

Kissed him. Like the Jews before them (Gen. 27:26, Luke 7:45), the early Christians greeted one another with a kiss of friendship. Paul called this greeting a holy kiss (1 Cor. 16:20, 2 Cor. 13:12, 1 Thess. 5:26); Peter called it a kiss of love (1 Pet. 5:14).
