People's Bible Notes for Acts 22:17


Ac 22:17 When I was come again to Jerusalem. This was three years after his conversion (Ga 1:17,18). He shows in what follows that it was by Divine direction that he had devoted his life to the conversion of the Gentiles, that he would have labored with his own race, but that, while in the temple praying, he had a second vision of the Lord who, a second time, assured him that his work was with the Gentiles. In a trance. The Greek term "ekstasis", "ecstasy", means a state of mind when the spirit was, as it were, lifted out of the bodily conditions and enabled to discern things unseen. Compare Ac 10:10. Some have held that this trance in the temple is described in 2Co 12:2,3, but this is uncertain.
