Wesley's Notes for Acts 17:26


17:26 He hath made of one blood the whole nation of men - By this expression the apostle showed them in the most unaffected manner, that though he was a Jew, be was not enslaved to any narrow views, but looked on all mankind as his brethren: having determined the times - That it is God who gave men the earth to inhabit, Paul proves from the order of times and places, showing the highest wisdom of the Disposer, superior to all human counsels. And the bounds of their habitation - By mountains, seas, rivers, and the like.

    It is very simple, Jesus called the Jews stiffed necked they were disobedient from day one. Paul is trying his best to teach them the real truth so they won't be lost again. The word of God said, God winked at ignorance. In our world today the same thing thing is happening, the world said show me then I will believe. God said believe and I will show you things you have never seen.
