Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Acts 13:33


13:33 Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee - It is true, he was the Son of God from eternity. The meaning therefore is, I have this day declared thee to be my Son. As St. Paul elsewhere, declared to be the Son of God with power, by the resurrection from the dead, #Rom 1:4|. And it is with peculiar propriety and beauty that God is said to have begotten him, on the day when he raised him from the dead, as he seemed then to be born out of the earth anew. #Psalm 2:7|.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 13:33


Ac 13:33 Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee. See Ps 2:7. Paul gives the thought in Ro 1:4: "He was declared to be the Son of God with power, by the resurrection from the dead".

Discussion for Acts 13

    To Paul on witnessing - you put me to shame; thank-you; I know when God's talking to me and He just did - thru you.
  • Paul
    How Many of us have witnessed for Christ under the possibility of our lives been taken in the act? I don't think very many- certainly not me. But if there was a possibility of that happening, like there was for Paul, honestly, how many of us would speak? And since there currently isn't, why arent we multiplying our efforts?

    Dear Insight777,
    The Lord said David was a man after His own heart; and He wants all of His sons and daughters to be after His own heart, in truth. That we were made in His own image and likeness has first to do with our character being like our Father in heaven. This is what Jesus came into the world to restore to men. David was anointed king of Israel for what kind of man God saw him to be.
  • Dewey J
    Bobbie, those that die believing in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior like David spirits goes straight to heaven but the body decay in the grave until the rapture or second coming of Jesus Christ. But Jesus Christ resurrected with his once mortal body glorified then ascended to heaven 40 days later as witnessed by the gospel of John and others. Praise God in the highest. Amen!
  • Cheryl
    Mike, Jesus was resurrected with an immortal fleshly body, which he proved to the disciples by eating a piece of broiled fish. Thomas put his finger into Jesus' wounds and recognised that this was in fact, Jesus. The spiritual person of the Godhead is the Holy Spirit; the Comforter whom Jesus sent to teach, lead and guide us, his future disciples. Blessed Holy Trinity.
  • Mike
    Verse 34 shows that Jesus was resurrected with a spirit body that was imperishable.
