When people beg to hear the word of God

New Testament: Acts 13.42–43

To read the Bible in a year, read Acts 13.24–52 on July 6, In the year of our Lord Christ 2021

By Don Ruhl 

Paul and Barnabas spoke to the Jews in a synagogue, but they were not really receptive to the gospel. Then Luke wrote: 

So when the Jews went out of the synagogue, the Gentiles begged that these words might be preached to them the next Sabbath. Now when the congregation had broken up, many of the Jews and devout proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.

– Acts 13.42–43 

The Jews should have been eager to hear the good news, but they were not, whereas, the Gentiles, who did not know the Lord as the Jews did, wanted to hear more of the word of God, and they followed the preachers, and the preachers in turn encouraged them to continue in the grace of God. 


  • What does your preacher preach? Is it the word of God? 
  • Are you eager to hear the word of God spoken?
