Bible Commentary for Acts 13:27

Wesley's Notes for Acts 13:27


13:27 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers - He here anticipates a strong objection, Why did not they at Jerusalem, and especially their rulers, believe? They know not him, because they understood not those very prophets whom they read or heard continually. Their very condemning him, innocent as he was, proves that they understood not the prophecies concerning him.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 13:27


Ac 13:27-37 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, etc. Paul now recapitulates the facts of the Gospel, viz: (1) Christ rejected by the rulers; (2) the Scriptures that they read every Sabbath fulfilled by condemning him; (3) the demand upon Pilate to slay him, when he had declared there was no cause of death; (4) the Scriptures fulfilled in his death; (5) the abundantly attested resurrection; (6) he declares that the promise made the fathers was now fulfilled to their children. See, for example, Ge 12:3 22:18.
