Wesley's Notes for Acts 1:6


1:6 Dost thou at this time - At the time thou now speakest of? not many days hence? restore the kingdom to Israel? - They still seemed to dream of an outward, temporal kingdom, in which the Jews should have dominion over all nations. It seems they came in a body, having before concerted the design, to ask when this kingdom would come.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 1:6


Ac 1:6 Wilt thou at this time, etc.? They still held to their old ideas of a worldly restoration of the kingdom of Israel. Their only question was, "Wilt thou restore it 'now'"? After the Holy Spirit was given, this delusion was dismissed, and they understood that Christ's kingdom is not of this world.

    Hi Ray; If you read carefully the whole portion you refer to; the Lord was telling them to wait for the "Power From On High" the Baptism of the Spirit; which they heard from Him they should receive. For in the same place Jesus also told them that it was not given to them to know the Day, which the Father reserves to His own Authority, for the Restoration of all things; but we need Power till then!
