Acts 14:27 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Had gathered the Church together - The Church by which they had been sent on this very important and successful mission.

They rehearsed all that God had done with them - Not what they had done themselves; but what God made them the instruments of working.

And how he had opened the door of faith - How God by his providence and grace had made a way for preaching Christ crucified among the heathen; and how the heathen had received that Gospel which, through faith in Christ Jesus, was able to save their souls.

There are no sermons I know of any divine or pastor in this kingdom, that have been more frequently printed, or more universally read and esteemed, than the elegant and judicious discourses of Mr. Binning, which were published after his death, at different times, in four small volumes.
