But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came unto Iconium.
1. "But they shook off the dust of their feet against them"
a. This phrase was used by Jesus on a number of occasions to his disciples that if any would reject the message of the gospel, they were to shake of the dust off their clothes and sandals of that house or city as a show of contempt toward that city or that house's rejection of the kingdom. Probably the best one that illustrates that is a verse in Luke.
1). Luke 10:11 "Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you."
b. Other passages that use this phrase are Matthew 10:1-15; Mark 6:7-13; Luke 9:1-6.
