The prophet Agabus (Acts 21:10)

“While we were staying

For several days,

A prophet

Named Agabus

Came down from Judea.”

Ἐπιμενόντων δὲ ἡμέρας πλείους κατῆλθέν τις ἀπὸ τῆς Ἰουδαίας προφήτης ὀνόματι Ἄγαβος,

The author of Acts indicated that while they were staying (Ἐπιμενόντων) for several days (δὲ ἡμέρας πλείους) in Caesarea, a prophet (προφήτης) named Agabus (ὀνόματι Ἄγαβος) came down (κατῆλθέν τις) from Judea (ἀπὸ τῆς Ἰουδαίας).  Paul and his companions, including the author or Acts, stayed an unspecified number of days in Caesarea with Philip, the evangelist.  Agabus, a prophet from Judea, had been in Antioch in chapter 11:28, where he correctly predicted a famine.  Now he showed up here again in Caesarea.  How much do you travel?
