Bible Commentary for Acts 27:9

Wesley's Notes for Acts 27:9


27:9 The fast, or day of atonement, was kept on the tenth of Tisri, that is, the 25th of September. This was to them an ill time of sailing; not only because winter was approaching, but also because of the sudden storms, which are still common in the Mediterranean at that time of the year. Paul exhorted them - Not to leave Crete. Even in external things, faith exerts itself with the greatest presence of mind, and readiness of advice.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 27:9


Ac 27:9 When much time was spent. How long a time had passed since the embarkation cannot be told, but so long that sailing was now dangerous. On account of the season of year. In the winter, not only the storms, but the clouds and darkness, interfered with navigation. Mariners, in the absence of the compass, needed the sun and stars to direct their course. Because the fast was . . . past. That of the Atonement, which came in October.

Discussion for Acts 27

  • Bob Grove on Acts 27:9
    Rev 20 v 6

    This is the First resurrection, Jesus said in John ch 6 He is the resurrection. This happens on the last day , prior to the Lords 2nd coming , same time or day . The wicked are destroyed and Jesus rules out of Jerusalem, Israel now is under his Reign. The promise is fulfilled

    The Pretribulation rapture of the church cannot be found in the bible . Because it's a heresy . I have been to churches that fully are indoctrinated with this so I heard just about all there is to it , it still is not in the bible .

    My conclusion is they are confusing the first resurrection with the so called Rapture 7 yrs before the tribulation .

    It started by jN Darby of the Plymouth brethren about 1830 s. . Yes I attended these churches for quite a while so I heard it all ! Still not found in the Bible after 45 yrs reading it prayerfully . Yes at one time I believed it until I started reading my Bible for myself .

    Thank God for the truth that sets us free if we continue in it ! Amen

    There is a catching up to be with the Lord when Jesus returns in the clouds just as he left according to the Angels . But in the Glory of God as well .

    No secret Rapture it's not found in the bible . Every eye shall see him ! Amen even so come Lord Jesus !!!
  • Bob Grove - in Reply on Acts 27:9
    In all the bible references to the so called rapture or what ever you want to call it. They are in true reference to the Dead in Christ shall rise then we which are a live and shall be caught up to meet the Lord in the air and return with him to Jerusalem!

    Job said I will see my redeemer in the flesh ! How interesting!
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Acts 27:9
    return with him to Jerusalem! Not to Jerusalem, But to Paradise to be judged for all things done good or bad. Then if we are worthy, its on to Heaven.
  • Bob Grove - in Reply on Acts 27:9
    Why is this in Acts 27 ?

    I'd did not post it to acts 27 .

    Also this is in reference to the true catching up to meet the lord on the LAST DAY according to Jesus John 6 verse 39, 40 among others .
  • Marvin Bronowicz - in Reply on Acts 27:9
    The word Rapture is not in the scripture but it is inferred in 1 Thes. 4.16-18!

    The Words Holy Trinity also not in scripture but they too are inferred in Matthew 28.19 and 1John 5-7.
