Bible Commentary for Acts 2:31

Wesley's Notes for Acts 2:31


2:29 The patriarch - A more honourable title than king.

2:30 #Psalm 89:4|, &c.

2:32 He foreseeing this, spake of the resurrection Of Christ - St. Peter argues thus: It is plain, David did not speak this of himself. Therefore he spake of Christ's rising. But how does that promise of a kingdom imply his resurrection? Because he did not receive it before he died, and because his kingdom was to endure for ever, #2Sam 7:13|.

2:33 Being exalted by the right hand of God - By the right hand; that is, the mighty power of God. Our Lord was exalted at his ascension to God's right hand in heaven.
