徒 Acts 19: 17-20
17 所有住在以弗所的犹太人和希腊人，都知道这件事；大家都惧怕，尊主耶稣的名为大。 18 也有许多信了的人，来承认和述说自己行过的事。 19 又有许多行巫术的人，把他们的书堆在一起当众烧掉。他们估计书价，才知道共值五万块银子。 20 这样，主的道大有能力地兴旺起来，而且得胜。
17 When this became known to the Jews and Greeks living in Ephesus, they were all seized with fear, and the name of the Lord Jesus was held in high honor. 18 Many of those who believed now came and openly confessed what they had done. 19 A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly. When they calculated the value of the scrolls, the total came to fifty thousand drachmas. 20 In this way the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power.
The Word grew greatly or unusually, many people joining the church because of the spread of the teaching, and individuals making more and more progress as their faith took deeper root.
