Bible Commentary for Acts 16:9

Wesley's Notes for Acts 16:9


16:9 A vision appeared to Paul by night - It was not a dream, though it was by night. No other dream is mentioned in the New Testament than that of Joseph and of Pilate's wife. A man of Macedonia - Probably an angel clothed in the Macedonian habit, or using the language of the country, and representing the inhabitants of it. Help us - Against Satan, ignorance, and sin.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 16:9


Ac 16:9 A vision appeared. Like Peter's vision at Joppa, it was a revelation. Like Peter's, it called him to labor in fields before unentered. A man of Macedonia. Macedonia proper lies to the north of the Aegean Sea, within a few hours sail of Troas. This ancient kingdom, under Philip and Alexander, had first absorbed all Greece, then conquered Persia and spread the Grecian language and customs over all western Asia. In turn it had fallen before the Romans, and was now a Roman province. It had a number of large cities, but Thessalonica was the Roman capital.

  • Henry on Acts 16:9
    this is a missionary call to Paul to go to a specific place, as the Lord had prepared hearts in this place, so salvation shown to these people
    would magnify the Lords Name and His glory.
    Also showing the Lord loves to reach the unsaved
    and make His Son the Lord Jesus known for His
    sacrifice to fallen man
