Acts 19:21-23 Amplified Bible (AMP)

21 Now after these events, Paul determined in the Spirit that he would travel through [a]Macedonia and Achaia (most of the Greek mainland), and go to Jerusalem, saying, “After I have been there, I must also see Rome [and preach the good news of salvation].” 22 And after sending two of his assistants, Timothy and [b]Erastus, to Macedonia [ahead of him], he stayed on in [the west coast province of] Asia [Minor] for a while.

23 About that time there occurred no small disturbance concerning the Way (Jesus, Christianity).

Footnotes:

  1. Acts 19:21 This was a lengthy, circular route for one headed to Jerusalem.
  2. Acts 19:22 This name is also mentioned in Rom 16:23 and 2 Tim 4:20, but it is uncertain if the references are to the same man. In 1929, a mid-first century inscription was found in Corinth identifying Erastus as the one who paid for an area of pavement in the city square, in return for his appointment as an Aedile (a Roman official responsible for public works and festivals, and empowered to maintain public order).
