People's Bible Notes for Acts 22:5


Ac 22:5 The high priest doth bear me witness. The high priest in A.D. 37, the time Saul of Tarsus was sent to Damascus, was not now high priest, having been deposed by the Romans, but was probably a member of the Sanhedrin at this time. It is also probable that the present high priest personally knew about all facts. There were many present who knew that he had been a commissioned persecutor.
