Barnabas and Paul tear their garments (Acts 14:14)

“When the apostles,


And Paul,

Heard of it,

They tore their garments.

They rushed out

Into the crowd.”

ἀκούσαντες δὲ οἱ ἀπόστολοι Βαρνάβας καὶ Παῦλος, διαρρήξαντες τὰ ἱμάτια ἑαυτῶν ἐξεπήδησαν εἰς τὸν ὄχλον,

The author of Acts indicated that when the apostles (δὲ οἱ ἀπόστολοι), Barnabas (Βαρνάβας) and Paul (καὶ Παῦλος), heard of this (ἀκούσαντες), they tore (διαρρήξαντες) their garments (τὰ ἱμάτια ἑαυτῶν).  They rushed out (ἐξεπήδησαν) into the crowd (εἰς τὸν ὄχλον).  Barnabas and Paul were upset when they heard about this attempt to treat them like gods.  They may have misunderstood this local Greek dialect.  Then they tore their clothes as a sign of distress and protest.  Once again, these two disciples who did not belong to the twelve apostles, were called apostles with Barnabas mentioned first.  They were talking about Jesus, but the people were treating them as if they were the sons of gods.  Did you ever think that you had the power of a god?
