Bible Commentary for Acts 15:25

Wesley's Notes for Acts 15:25


15:23 Writing thus, and sending it by their hand - The whole conduct of this affair plainly shows that the Church in those days had no conception of St. Peter's primacy, or of his being the chief judge in controversies. For the decree is drawn up, not according to his, but the Apostle James's proposal and direction: and that in the name, not of St. Peter, but of all the apostles and elders, and of the whole Church. Nay, St. Peter's name is not mentioned at all, either in the order for sending to Jerusalem on the question, #Acts 15:2|, or in the address of the messengers concerning it, #Acts 15:4|, or in the letter which was written in answer.

15:24 Forasmuch as, &c. - The simplicity, weightiness, and conciseness of this letter are highly observable.

15:26 Men that have hazarded their lives - This is spoken of Paul and Barnabas.

15:27 Who will tell you the same things - Which we have written.
