The division among the people (Acts 14:4)

“But the people

Of that city

Were divided.

Some sided

With the Jews.

While others sided

With the apostles.”

ἐσχίσθη δὲ τὸ πλῆθος τῆς πόλεως, καὶ οἱ μὲν ἦσαν σὺν τοῖς Ἰουδαίοις, οἱ δὲ σὺν τοῖς ἀποστόλοις.

The author of Acts indicated that most of the people of Iconium (δὲ τὸ πλῆθος τῆς πόλεως) were divided (ἐσχίσθη).  Some sided with the Jews (καὶ οἱ μὲν ἦσαν σὺν τοῖς Ἰουδαίοις), while others sided with the apostles (οἱ δὲ σὺν τοῖς ἀποστόλοις).  A lot of the people in this city of Iconium were split.  Some sided with the Jews, while others sided with the apostles.  Notice that the author of Acts called them, Paul and Barnabas, apostles.  Up to this point, that term had been reserved for the particular Twelve apostles.  Remember the big deal about getting a replacement for the apostle Judas, when Matthias was chosen in chapter 1:12-26.  Do you think that anyone should be called an apostle other than the original twelve apostles of Jesus?
