Overcoming Anxiety: Finding Peace, Discovering God


A New Testament Study of Silas/Silvanus

Paul J. Bucknell

Silas and Silvanus is thought of as the same person mentioned 17 times in the NT (see below). In this study, (1) discover what facts you can about him and (2) what aspects should we imitate.

Ac 15:22 Then it seemed good to the apostles and the elders, with the whole church, to choose men from among them to send to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas--Judas called Barsabbas, and Silas, leading men among the brethren,

Ac 15:27 “Therefore we have sent Judas and Silas, who themselves will also report the same things by word of mouth.

Ac 15:32 And Judas and Silas, also being prophets themselves, encouraged and strengthened the brethren with a lengthy message.

Ac 15:34 [But it seemed good to Silas to remain there.]

Ac 15:40 But Paul chose Silas and departed, being committed by the brethren to the grace of the Lord.

Ac 16:19 But when her masters saw that their hope of profit was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the market place before the authorities,

Ac 16:25 But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them;

Ac 16:29 And he called for lights and rushed in and, trembling with fear, he fell down before Paul and Silas,

Ac 17:4 And some of them were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, along with a great multitude of the God-fearing Greeks and a number of the leading women.

Ac 17:10 And the brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea; and when they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews.

Ac 17:14 And then immediately the brethren sent Paul out to go as far as the sea; and Silas and Timothy remained there.

Ac 17:15 Now those who conducted Paul brought him as far as Athens; and receiving a command for Silas and Timothy to come to him as soon as possible, they departed.

Ac 18:5 But when Silas and Timothy came down from Macedonia, Paul began devoting himself completely to the word, solemnly testifying to the Jews that Jesus was the Christ.

2Co 1:19 For the Son of God, Christ Jesus, who was preached among you by us--by me and Silvanus and Timothy--was not yes and no, but is yes in Him.

1Th 1:1 Paul and Silvanus and Timothy to the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace.

2Th 1:1 Paul and Silvanus and Timothy to the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:

1Pe 5:12 Through Silvanus, our faithful brother (for so I regard him), I have written to you briefly, exhorting and testifying that this is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it!
