Acts 15:25 Meaning and Commentary

Acts 15:25

It seemed good unto us, being assembled with one accord,
&c.] Or together; in one place, as the Vulgate Latin and Arabic versions render it; see ( Acts 2:1 ) though certain it is, that as they were in one place, so they were in one mind; and their unanimity was proper to be mentioned, in order to engage a regard to their advice:

to send men chosen unto you;
men chosen for this purpose; namely, Judas and Silas:

with our beloved Barnabas and Paul;
who are commended thus, partly to express their affection to them; and partly to observe the wisdom of the church at Antioch, in sending two such agreeable persons; and chiefly to testify their approbation of the doctrine and conduct of these two men.

Acts 15:25 In-Context

23 They wrote this letter to be delivered by them: From the apostles and the elders, your brothers, To the brothers from among the Gentiles in Antioch, Syria, and Cilicia: Greetings.
24 Because we have heard that some to whom we gave no authorization went out from us and troubled you with their words and unsettled your hearts,
25 we have unanimously decided to select men and send them to you along with our beloved Barnabas and Paul,
26 who have risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
27 Therefore we have sent Judas and Silas, who will personally report the same things by word of mouth.
