John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Acts 11:1

And the apostles and brethren that were in Judea
The rest of the twelve apostles, and the private members of the churches that were in Judea, for there were in it now more churches than that at Jerusalem, ( Acts 9:31 )

heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God;
as well as Samaria, ( Acts 8:14 ) the news by some means or other were quickly brought to them, and no doubt but they also heard that they had received the Holy Ghost, his extraordinary gifts, as well as his special grace, though no mention is made of them.
