Denny Diehl here with a question about Ac 11:26

In a commentary on Ac 11 is the following:

        "To an untrained reader of the Greek it might
        appear that the passage should be rendered,
        ' they were gathered together with the church,
        and taught much people, and called the disciples
        Christians first at Antioch,' thus representing
        Barnabas and Saul as the authors of the name;
        but this rendering is condemned, and that of our
        text is justified by the almost unanimous judgment
        of scholars."

Why? In Ac 11:26 there is:

        They (Barnabas and Saul) - subject
        SUNACQHNAI - aorist infinitive passive
        DIDAXAI - aorist infinitive active
        CRHMATISAI - aorist infinitive active

What am I missing here?
