Bible Commentary for Acts 19:36

Wesley's Notes for Acts 19:36


19:34 But when they knew that he was a Jew - And consequently an enemy to their worship of images; they prevented him, by crying, Great is Diana of the Ephesians.

19:35 The register - Probably the chief governor of the public games. The image which fell down from Jupiter - They believed that very image of Diana, which stood in her temple, fell down from Jupiter in heaven. Perhaps he designed to insinuate, as if falling down from Jupiter, it was not made with hands, and so was not that sort of idols which Paul had said were no gods.

19:37 Nor blasphemers of your goddess - They simply declared the one God, and the vanity of idols in general.

19:38 There are proconsuls - One in every province. There was one at Ephesus.
