Wesley's Notes for Acts 20:24

20:24 Nor do I count my life precious - It adds great force to this and all the other passages of Scripture, in which the apostles express their contempt of the world, that they were not uttered by persons like Seneca and Antoninus, who talked elegantly of despising the world in the full affluence of all its enjoyments; but by men who daily underwent the greatest calamities, and exposed their lives in proof of their assertions.

 

Comments for Acts 20:24

Connie Moore's comment on 2013-06-03 21:05:35:

Why is the part "with joy" omitted from many of the translations? Could it be that we have a difficult time associating suffering and self-denial with having joy? Maybe Paul wanted to convey that he did not count his life in the world as important because he wanted to be able to be a cheerful giver of himself to the Lord.
