    VERSE (2) -
    :6; 16:12; 17:1,10

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:2

    Y despus que hubo andado aquellas partes, y de exhortarles con abundancia de palabra, vino a Grecia.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 20:2

    Verse 2. He came into Greece] eiv thn ellada, Into Hellas, Greece properly so called, the
    regions between Thessaly and Propontis, and the country of Achaia. He did not, however, go there immediately: he passed through Macedonia, ver. 1, in which he informs us, 2 Cor. vii. 5-7, that he suffered much, both from believers and infidels; but was greatly comforted by the arrival of Titus, who gave him a very flattering account of the prosperous state of the Church at Corinth. A short time after this, being still in Macedonia, he sent Titus back to Corinth, 2 Cor. viii. 16, 17, and sent by him the second epistle which he wrote to that Church, as Theodouret and others suppose. Some time after, he visited Corinth himself, according to his promise, 1 Cor. xvi. 5. This was his third voyage to that city, 2 Cor. xii. 14; xiii. 1. What he did there at this time cannot be distinctly known; but, according to St. Augustin, he ordered every thing relative to the holy eucharist, and the proper manner in which it was to be received. See Calmet.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. And when he had gone
    over those parts , etc.] Of Macedonia, and the cities in it before mentioned; and had given them much exhortation ; to abide by the doctrines and ordinances of the Gospel, and to walk worthy of it in their lives and conversations; and this exhortation he was frequently giving, as often as he had opportunity, improving his time much this way, and continued long at it: and, having pursued it to a sufficient length, he came into Greece ; or Hellas; which, according to Ptolomy and Solinus, f991 , is properly true Greece; the former makes it to be the same with Achaia, where Corinth was; and the latter says it was in his time called Attica, where Athens was; so Pliny f992 , who also says, that Thessaly was so called: this Hellas included Macedonia, Epirus, Thessaly, Achaia, which is properly Greece, Peloponnesus, and the adjacent islands.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-6 - Tumults or opposition may
    constrain a Christian to remove from his station or alter his purpose, but his work and his pleasure will be the same, wherever he goes. Paul thought it worth while to bestow five day in going to Troas, though it was but for seven days' stay there; but he knew, and so should we, how to redeem even journeying time, and to make it turn to some good account.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    2. Greece. The
    Roman province of Achaia, comprehending Greece proper and the Peloponnesus. Luke uses Achaia (ch. xxix. 21) and Greece synonymously, as distinguished from Macedonia.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    20:2 {Those
    parts} (ta mere ekeina). We have no way of knowing why Luke did not tell of Paul's stay in Troas (#2Co 2:12f.) nor of meeting Titus in Macedonia (#2Co 2:13-7:16) nor of Paul's visit to Illyricum (#Ro 15:19f.) to give time for II Corinthians to do its work (#2Co 13), one of the most stirring experiences in Paul's whole career when he opened his heart to the Corinthians and won final victory in the church by the help of Titus who also helped him round up the great collection in Achaia. He wrote II Corinthians during this period after Titus arrived from Corinth. The unity of II Corinthians is here assumed. Paul probably met Luke again in Macedonia, but all this is passed by except by the general phrase: "had given them much exhortation" (parakalesas autous logwi pollwi). Literally, "having exhorted them (the Macedonian brethren) with much talk" (instrumental case). {Into Greece} (eis ten hellada). That is, Achaia (#18:12; 19:21), and particularly Corinth, whither he had at last come again after repeated attempts, pauses, and delays (#2Co 13:1). Now at last the coast was clear and Paul apparently had an open door in Corinth during these three months, so completely had Titus at last done away with the opposition of the Judaizers there.
