Why did you stay Silas?
Acts 15:34 (Some manuscripts include here) “But Silas decided to remain there”.
Why did Silas remain in Antioch after he and Judas had been sent away in peace?
Many theologians have their opinions and theories.
The fact is that Paul and Barnabas were remaining in Antioch and Silas decided he would remain there too.
Wherever Paul and his team went then it seemed God was doing something whether healings, salvations and deliverances.
With the teaching given and accepted and now the possibility that many more Gentiles will come into salvation, maybe Silas wanted to be there to see this happen.
I don’t know why Silas remained but he did.
But if I was him I would want to be with leaders who knew God. If I was him I would want to be where God was. If I was him I want to be where the Spirit is bringing revelation and there is freedom in the Church. I still do.
