Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentActs 25:1
- Having come into the province (epibav thi eparxeiai).
- Second aorist active participle of epibainw, to set foot upon. Literally, "Having set foot upon his province." Eparxeia is a late word for province, in N.T. only here and 23:34. Judea was not strictly a province, but a department (Page) of the province of Syria which was under a propraetor (legatuv Xaesariv) while Judea was under a procurator (epitropov).
- After three days (meta treiv hmerav).
- So in Acts 28:17 in Rome. That is on the third day, with a day of rest in between. Precisely the language used of the resurrection of Jesus "after three days" = "on the third day." So by common usage then and now.
