A Textual Commentary On Acts 12:25

(a) At the end of the eleventh chapter of the Acts, Barnabas and Saul are represented as going up from Antioch to Judæa, carrying with them to the Church there the contributions of the Syrian disciples for its relief. Then follows, evidently in the order of time, that interesting narrative respecting the deliverance of Peter from prison by the angel, the death of the persecutor Herod, and the growth and prosperity of the infant Church. The concluding verse of the twelfth chapter, in perfect consistency with the whole narrative, accordingly runs on thus : “And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem, when they had fulfilled their ministry,” or service. Instead of “from Jerusalem” the impossible variation “to Jerusalem” appears in Codex B and its familiar associate L, and not in them only in this case, but also in the Codex Sinaiticus, and indeed in so many other considerable authorities that we ought not to refuse to accept their testimony, if any testimony could suffice to convince us of the truth of a moral impossibility.
