Upon his arrival in Jerusalem in Acts 21, Paul delivered a report of his latest mission trip to the church leadership, who responded with genuine, God-centered praise. His arrival, however, also forced the church to confront rumors about his ministry that had run rampant in his absence. Alistair Begg explains that even in his approach to this issue, Paul’s overarching desire was to promote the Gospel and the unity of God’s people.
17When we had come to Jerusalem, the brothers received us gladly.
