Acts 11:26

26 And when he found him, he brought him to aAntioch. And it happened with them that for a whole year they were gathered in the bchurch and taught a considerable number and that the disciples were first called 1cChristians in Antioch.

261 See note 161 in 1 Pet. 4. That the disciples in Antioch were given such a nickname, a term of reproach, indicates that they must have borne a strong testimony for the Lord, a testimony that made them distinct and peculiar in the eyes of the unbelievers.
