Bible Commentary for Acts 1:11

Wesley's Notes for Acts 1:11


1:12 A Sabbath - day's journey - The Jews generally fix this to two thousand cubits, which is not a mile.

1:13 They went up into the upper room - The upper rooms, so frequently mentioned in Scripture, were chambers in the highest part of the house, set apart by the Jews for private prayer. These, on account of their being so retired and convenient, the apostles now used for all the offices of religion. #Matt 10:2|; Mark 3:14; Luke 6:13.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 1:11


Ac 1:11 Ye men of Galilee. The apostles were mostly, if not all, Galileans. This same Jesus . . . shall so come. The cloud received him from their sight. He shall come in the clouds of heaven (Da 7:13 Mt 24:30 26:24).

Discussion for Acts 1:11

  • Freddieo on Acts 1:11
    John says I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness"make strait the way of the Lord". How can a man be a voice crying in the wilderness? What wilderness? 1. Where is this wilderness? Is it real, is it someplace other than where you and I already exist? John proclaims Christ, "behold the lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world"! And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost." 2. How is it possible for John to SEE the holy Ghost? let alone remaining on Christ? 3. John bares record with all this information that Jesus is the son of God! Can time and space be the kingdom of God! Is this the wilderness John speaks of? How does John see the Holy Ghost? Is John hallucinating? Maybe he has had to much honey to eat. Seeing the Holy Spirit in the wilderness of heaven (time and space) is an opportunity for all of us to see, that we may see through faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ! Have you ever seen the Holy Ghost? Maybe you have but never realized it?

    Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not of this world. When you except Jesus Christ you are stepping into a sphere beyond all understanding! You are just beginning to see what the kingdom is and what is in store for those that believe on his name!

    Acts 1 v 11

    Jesus left the earth and is coming back the same way , to the earth to reign . 1000 yrs .

    Even so come Lord Jesus !
  • Rev. Tim George on Acts 1:11
    The men of Galilee are gazing into heaven looking at Jesus as He is caught up into the clouds to be with the Father in glory, and while the disciples are looking the angels said, ye men, the same Jesus shall so descend from heaven in the clouds. The catching away of the saints, will be in the clouds, when Jesus shouts, at the last trumpet blast, the dead in Christ will rise first, then we who are alive and remain, shall be caught up to be with the Lord in the air. This is the secret coming of the Lord, and not the second coming, where He will be riding on the clouds, and all the tribes on earth will see Him. The secret coming, is when only the saints, those in the grave, and those living shall see Him.
