What does Acts 9:42 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Acts 9:42

And it was known throughout all Joppa
The report of such a miracle, and wrought upon a person of note, was soon spread all over the place, which was very large, for it was a city, as it is called, ( Acts 11:5 ) , and it had, as Josephus F17 says, villages and little towns or cities round about it; all which might go by the name of Joppa, and throughout which the fame of this miracle might pass:

and many believed in the Lord;
in the Lord Jesus Christ, whom Peter preached, and the saints in Joppa professed, and in whose name, and by whose power, this miracle was done.
