    There was great joy in that city - No wonder, when they heard such glorious truths, and were the subjects of such beneficent miracles.

    Barnes' Notes on Acts 8:8

    And there was great joy - This joy arose:

    (1) From the fact that so many persons, before sick and afflicted, were restored to health.

    (2) from the conversion of individuals to Christ.

    (3) from the mutual joy of "families" and "friends" that their friends were converted. The tendency of a revival of religion is thus to produce great joy.
