Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Acts 13:33


13:33 Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee - It is true, he was the Son of God from eternity. The meaning therefore is, I have this day declared thee to be my Son. As St. Paul elsewhere, declared to be the Son of God with power, by the resurrection from the dead, #Rom 1:4|. And it is with peculiar propriety and beauty that God is said to have begotten him, on the day when he raised him from the dead, as he seemed then to be born out of the earth anew. #Psalm 2:7|.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 13:33


Ac 13:33 Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee. See Ps 2:7. Paul gives the thought in Ro 1:4: "He was declared to be the Son of God with power, by the resurrection from the dead".

    The Jews raised up an army of voices of men and women to run Paul and Barnabas out of Town. Just like today. The lost pushed The Light out of Public Schools, education systems,The Government. And Worse of all: The Churches. The Darkness is taken over The World like a Flood. Most say they are saved! then say get out-of-the-way I can't see the TV! the Internet is down. Some here need The Blood.

    V. 50 - But the Jews stirred up the devout and honorable women ..... "? I wonder if anyone knows what THAT was all about. What? the men couldn't handle it themselves - or what ... ?

    To Paul on witnessing - you put me to shame; thank-you; I know when God's talking to me and He just did - thru you.
  • Paul
    How Many of us have witnessed for Christ under the possibility of our lives been taken in the act? I don't think very many- certainly not me. But if there was a possibility of that happening, like there was for Paul, honestly, how many of us would speak? And since there currently isn't, why arent we multiplying our efforts?
  • Michael C.
    Dear Insight777,
    The Lord said David was a man after His own heart; and He wants all of His sons and daughters to be after His own heart, in truth. That we were made in His own image and likeness has first to do with our character being like our Father in heaven. This is what Jesus came into the world to restore to men. David was anointed king of Israel for what kind of man God saw him to be.
