People's Bible Notes for Acts 11:14


Ac 11:14 Whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved. Note the import of these words of the angel to Cornelius: (1) Notwithstanding his prayers, alms, devotion, and justice, he was not yet saved. Only the gospel could save him. God's mercy was shown in bringing him the gospel. (2) This is the first instance named in Acts of a household baptism. Were there any infants? Who are meant is seen by reference to "his kinsmen and near friends" (Ac 10:24). These "heard" (Ac 10:44), were baptized with the Holy Spirit (Ac 10:45), and baptized in water (Ac 10:47,48).
