Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Acts 17:25


17:25 Neither is he served as though he needed any thing - or person - The Greek word equally takes in both. To all - That live and breathe; - in him we live; and breathe - In him we move. By breathing life is continued. I breathe this moment: the next is not in my power: and all things - For in him we are. So exactly do the parts of this discourse answer each other.

    Act 17,taught us to preach to world without fear and there is oppositions to word of God always.

    Acts chapter 17 it s talking about these Jews who have turned the world upside down saying that there is another king, one Jesus like today with false pictures of Jesus it troubled the people and the rulers of the city, when they heard these things. And when the Jews of Thessalonica had knowledge that the word of God was preached of Paul at Berea, they came to stirred up the people.
  • EROMOSELE CLEMENT EHIMARE
    Acts 17 is an amazing Chapter. i love the roggedity of Paul as he was not deter by any opposition to what he believed in. he was very courageous and well convinced about his believe and was able to persuade people into his conviction regardless of what the opposition was. thumbs up.

    Rise Again: TO COME BACK TO LIFE: When Jesus Rose from the Dead, He Comfirmed His
    Identity as the SON Of the Living God, and His finished work of Salvation. He Rise Again: Death could not keep Him in the Grave. He had power to lay His Life down: and Power to take it up again.

  • David Johnson
    Paul preached to these in his day out of the old testament for that was all they had, the new was being wrote. He preached and taught from passages like Isaiah 53 and Psalms 22 23 concerning the death and resurrection of Christ it was all prophecy when wrote but now Paul can preach it in the past. The prophets wrote that Christ would rise (again) future but now its past tense. Fulfilled prophecy..
