Many lamps (Acts 20:8)

“There were many lamps

In the upstairs room,

Where we were gathered.”

ἦσαν δὲ λαμπάδες ἱκαναὶ ἐν τῷ ὑπερῴῳ οὗ ἦμεν συνηγμένοι.

The author of Acts indicated that there were many lamps (ἦσαν δὲ λαμπάδες ἱκαναὶ) in the upstairs room (ἐν τῷ ὑπερῴῳ), where they were gathered or assembled (οὗ ἦμεν συνηγμένοι).  Acts was the only Greek biblical writing that used this word ὑπερῴῳ, that means the upper story, the upper rooms, or the upper part of a house.  Once again, the author of Acts used the first personal plural with “ἦμεν”, “we were gathered”.  He was part of this group of people at Troas that was listening to Paul in this upper room with a lot of lanterns, torches, or lamps in it.  Have you ever been in a room with a lot of lanterns or lamps in it?
