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

    Verse 22, I believe the heart mentioned here is symbolically Jesus. Jesus said I am before David, Jesus existed before David yet David is listed as his father in linage as the Messiah. The man fulfilling God 's will is Jesus, the heart of God. David was after Gods heart, Jesus, not before Jesus. It is Jesus not David that fulfills all of Gods will.

  • Explain why some use Cross and some use tree? Did not God say my word change not? His name will always be God because He is God! He had to come in the form of a Man whom He called Jesus and we know that Jesus and God are the same. However, a cross is not the same as a tree, would you please explain why it has been changed by your interpretation?

    Joseph Ryder 's Acts Chapter 13 comment on 10 20 2013, 10 47am... Paul is not wrong. God hand picked him to save the gentiles. when the Jews rejected Jesus the Christ. God turned to the gentiles.We had no place with God. The laws and the promise was for the Jew 's only. Thanks to the Jews we can be saved.
