    Clarke's Commentary on Acts 14:1

    In Iconium - See the conclusion of the preceding chapter.

    So spake - Και λαλησαι οὑτως. With such power and demonstration of the Spirit, that a great multitude both of the Jews, genuine descendants of one or other of the twelve tribes, and also of the Greeks, Ἑλληνων, probably such as were proselytes of the gate, believed, received the Christian religion as a revelation from God, and confided in its Author for salvation, according to the apostles' preaching.

    Barnes' Notes on Acts 14:1

    In Iconium - See the notes on Acts 13:51. In this place, and in Antioch and Lystra, Timothy became acquainted with Paul and his manner of life, 2 Timothy 3:10-11.

    So spake - Spake with such power - their preaching was attended so much with the influence of the Spirit.

    And also of the Greeks - Probably proselytes from the Greeks, who were in the habit of attending the synagogue.
