Wesley's Notes for Acts 26:28


26:28 Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian! - See here, Festus altogether a heathen, Paul alogether a Christian, Agrippa halting between both. Poor Agrippa! But almost persuaded! So near the mark, and yet fall short! Another step, and thou art within the vail. Reader, stop not with Agrippa; but go on with Paul.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 26:28


Ac 26:28 Almost thou persaudest me to be a Christian. The Revised Version changes the translation somewhat ("With but little persuasion thou wouldest fain make me a Christian"), but I have little doubt but that the Common Version gives the idea. The king, like Felix, was deeply moved (Ac 24:25); the fact that he and Festus decided that Paul was not a transgressors show that they were favorably impressed (Ac 26:32); it was no occasion for an ironical answer, and Paul took the remark as in earnest, and added still another appeal. Chrysostom, Luther, Beza, Bengal and Howson take this view.
