Bible Commentary for Acts 22:7

Wesley's Notes for Acts 22:7


22:5 The high priest is my witness - Is able to testify. The brethren - Jews: so this title was not peculiar to the Christians.

22:6 About noon - All was done in the face of the sun. A great light shone - By whatever method God reveals himself to us, we shall have everlasting cause to recollect it with pleasure. Especially when he has gone in any remarkable manner out of his common way for this gracious purpose. If so, we should often dwell on the particular circumstances, and be ready, on every proper occasion, to recount those wonders of power and love, for the encouragement and instruction of others.

22:9 They did not hear the voice - Distinctly; but only a confused noise.
