Wesley's Notes for Acts 10:48


10:48 In the name of the Lord - Which implies the Father who anointed him, and the Spirit with which he was anointed to his office. But as the Gentiles had before believed in God the Father, and could not but now believe in the Holy Ghost, under whose powerful influence they were at this very time, there was the less need of taking notice, that they were baptized into the belief and profession of the sacred Three: though doubtless the apostle administered the ordinances in that very form which Christ himself had prescribed.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 10:48


Ac 10:48 Commanded them to be baptized. All who heard and upon whom the Holy Spirit fell. In the name of the Lord. In acknowledgment of his authority. All the baptisms of Acts are "in" his name, but "into" the names of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Discussion for Acts 10

  • Ray321
    1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints Thank Lord for your Word that is not confusing.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    God, not being One of confusion, showed Peter and Cornelius, similar visions at different times and in different locations. He brought the two together and there was a mighty outpouring of the Holy Ghost, followed by water baptism. A lesson here is the power of fasting- both Cornelius and Peter were fasting when they had their visions. A second lesson is to be able to heed God's Word.
  • Ray321
    Acts 10 :13-14 13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter kill, and eat. 14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean. Now Peter is used to following the Old Testament Law. But God is making changes in the book of Act's. God told Peter that he can now eat meat. The book of Act's in a transitional Book, there are many changes happening.
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    Disciple: Jesus already fulfilled the law. He died and arose again from the dead. You are out of context. Luke 24:44] And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
  • A disciple
    Ray; Jesus didn't come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; but to accomplish! There is nothing in the New Testament to indicate that there was a different Moshiach or a new religion; like many purport. But what we learn from ALL the Apostles, is that "this same Jesus whom I preach to you IS Christ." Remember when the Lord walked with the two disciples to Emmaus in Luke 24? He expounded all of it!
  • Ray321
    Acts 10:13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter kill, and eat. Peter was stuck in the Old Testament teaching of the Messiah. This is where Paul starts to take over later in the chapters. Paul will heal more others and have the Holy Ghost longer. There is a reason for that, only God knows.
