Acts 9:42 Parallel
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Many believed in the Lord - That is, in Christ Jesus, in whose name and through whose power they understood this miracle to be wrought.

They called themselves 'disciples,' 'believers, 'saints,' 'brethren,' as if feeling about for a title. Here is a name that had obtained currency for a while, and was afterwards disused.
