Kisah Para Rasul 15:35-41Konteks
15:35 But Paul and Barnabas remained in Antioch, 1 teaching and proclaiming (along with many others) 2 the word of the Lord. 3
15:36 After some days Paul said to Barnabas, “Let’s return 4 and visit the brothers in every town where we proclaimed the word of the Lord 5 to see how they are doing.” 6 15:37 Barnabas wanted to bring John called Mark along with them too, 15:38 but Paul insisted 7 that they should not take along this one who had left them in Pamphylia 8 and had not accompanied them in the work. 15:39 They had 9 a sharp disagreement, 10 so that they parted company. Barnabas took along 11 Mark and sailed away to Cyprus, 12 15:40 but Paul chose Silas and set out, commended 13 to the grace of the Lord by the brothers and sisters. 14 15:41 He passed through Syria and Cilicia, strengthening 15 the churches.
[15:35] 3 sn The word of the Lord is a technical expression in OT literature, often referring to a divine prophetic utterance (e.g., Gen 15:1, Isa 1:10, Jonah 1:1). In the NT it occurs 15 times: 3 times as ῥῆμα τοῦ κυρίου (rJhma tou kuriou; Luke 22:61, Acts 11:16, 1 Pet 1:25) and 12 times as λόγος τοῦ κυρίου (logo" tou kuriou; here and in v. 36; Acts 8:25; 13:44, 48, 49; 16:32; 19:10, 20; 1 Thess 1:8, 4:15; 2 Thess 3:1). As in the OT, this phrase focuses on the prophetic nature and divine origin of what has been said.
[15:39] 9 tn Grk “There happened a sharp disagreement.” The introductory phrase ἐγένετο (egeneto, “it happened that”), common in Luke (69 times) and Acts (54 times), is redundant in contemporary English and has not been translated.
[15:40] 13 tn Or “committed.” BDAG 762 s.v. παραδίδωμι 2 gives “be commended by someone to the grace of the Lord” as the meaning for this phrase, although “give over” and “commit” are listed as alternatives for this category.
[15:40] 14 tn Grk “by the brothers.” Here it it is highly probable that the entire congregation is in view, not just men, so the translation “brothers and sisters” has been used for the plural ἀδελφῶν (adelfwn),.
