“The word of the Lord
Throughout the whole region.”
διεφέρετο δὲ ὁ λόγος τοῦ Κυρίου δι’ ὅλης τῆς χώρας.
The author of Acts indicated that the word of the Lord (ὁ λόγος τοῦ Κυρίου) spread (διεφέρετο) throughout the whole region (δι’ ὅλης τῆς χώρας). Once again, the author of Acts indicated that the successful preaching of Paul had led to more believers in the word of the Lord, Jesus Christ, throughout the whole area. How do you measure the success of the word of the Lord?
