Paul told them about his ministry among the gentiles (Acts 21:19)

“After greeting them,

Paul related

One by one

The things

That God had done

Among the gentiles

Through his ministry.”

καὶ ἀσπασάμενος αὐτοὺς ἐξηγεῖτο καθ’ ἓν ἕκαστον ὧν ἐποίησεν ὁ Θεὸς ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν διὰ τῆς διακονίας αὐτοῦ.

The author of Acts indicated that after greeting them (καὶ ἀσπασάμενος αὐτοὺς), Paul related (ἐξηγεῖτο) one by one (καθ’ ἓν ἕκαστον) all the things that God (ὁ Θεὸς) had done (ὧν ἐποίησεν) among the gentiles (ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν) through his ministry (διὰ τῆς διακονίας αὐτοῦ).  Paul had also preached to the Jews, but they were more interested in what was happening with the gentile Christians.  Paul, after greeting them, told them all the details about what God had done among the gentiles through his ministry.  They were anxious to find out what had happened to Paul on his long four-year missionary journey.  Have you ever listened to missionary stories from Christian missionaries?
