Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Acts 3:22


3:22 The Lord shall raise you up a prophet like unto me - And that in many particulars. Moses instituted the Jewish Church: Christ instituted the Christian. With the prophesying of Moses was soon joined the effect, the deliverance of Israel from Egypt: with the prophesying of Christ that grand effect, the deliverance of his people from sin and death. Those who could not bear the voice of God, yet desired to hear that of Moses. Much more do those who are wearied with the law, desire to hear the voice of Christ. Moses spake to the people all, and only those things, which God had commanded him: so did Christ. But though he was like Moses, yet he was infinitely superior to him, in person, as well as in office. #Deut 18:15|.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 3:22

    I love act because my dad teaches it he is a pastor

    The Church can no longer say Gold and Silver have I none, but it also can't say in the name of Jesus Christ rise up and walk. The Church of today has NO power!

    Verse 17~Even though Peter's brothers were in the wrong, he still made sure to treat them with respect and speak to them respectfully.
  • SHAUN
    Hello, well I believe that Peter was known as a common man throughout the region. infact he was average. thus they could not fathom how "the average man" could have such authority over principalities of that nature.
    Jesus on the other hand had gathered great fame and was perceived by many to be a prophet. An other reason would be that Jesus is Christ and His own people would not accept Him.
  • Joshua
    Act 3 is deep as it revealed the miracle and power in the name of Jesus that arouse our faith in that name.
  • Arley3
    Rebeka if people want to sin they can believe a lie with miracles happening right in front of their eyes. "2 Thes. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." If God didn't make it this way we wouldn't see evil as a choice. God wants voluntary praise.
