The same thing happened in Iconium. Paul and Barnabas entered the Jewish synagogue and spoke as they had before. As a result, a huge number of Jews and Greeks believed.
However, the Jews who rejected the faith stirred up the Gentiles, poisoning their minds against the brothers.
Nevertheless, Paul and Barnabas stayed there for quite some time, confidently speaking about the Lord. And the Lord confirmed the word about his grace by the signs and wonders he enabled them to perform.
The people of the city were divided—some siding with the Jews, others with the Lord's messengers.
Then some Gentiles and Jews, including their leaders, hatched a plot to mistreat and stone Paul and Barnabas.
When they learned of it, these two messengers fled to the Lycaonian cities of Lystra and Derbe and the surrounding area,
where they continued to proclaim the good news.
