Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Acts 4:6


4:6 Annas, who had been the high priest, and Caiaphas, who was so then.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 4:6


Ac 4:6 Annas the high priest. Still so called, though deposed ten years before by the Romans. The Jews held him still as high priest by right. Caiaphas. Son-in-law of Annas, and the high priest now in office by Roman appointment. John, and Alexander. No doubt great men at the time, but we know nothing of them. Kindred of the high priest. Of the family of Annas, all of priestly rank, and many of them holding high offices. The Sanhedrin usually met in a hall of the temple.

Discussion for Acts 4

  • Barbara
    KJ version is only translation that uses the phrase Acts 4:30 By the Name of Jesus not through the Name of Jesus. This gives two different meanings to me. Am I missing something here or am I misunderstanding

    Verse 13~They were outspoken because they had the holy spirit which gave them the boldness to be fearlessly outspoken.

    Verse 12- there is no salvation in anyone else but Jesus and their is no other true path to follow.

    Verse 3~Persecution arose soon after holy spirit was poured out. Satan uses his earthly agents to try and stop the progress of the true Christian congregation.
  • Freddieo
    I remember my baptism at 20 years old. It truly was an unforgettable experience. The p0wer of the holy ghost can truly have an immediate impact upon you. I like to compare it to hitting a home run. I pray that same power would continue with me forever, and the Love of Jesus and the power of the holy ghost. Peter, like me, started out good, he did deny Christ. This is the journey that is ahead.
