Wesley's Notes for Acts 8:33


8:33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away - That is, when he was a man, he had no justice shown him. To take away a person's judgment, is a proverbial phrase for oppressing him. And who shall declare, or count his generation - That is, who can number his seed, #Isa 53:10|; which he hath purchased by laying down his life?

Ac 8:33 His judgment was taken away. Justice was trampled under foot. Who shall declare his generation? Meyer, De Wette, Robinson and Hackett all agree that this refers to portraying the wickedness of the generation which slew him. Others insist that it means Christ's spiritual posterity, his followers.

Discussion for Acts 8

  • Irene123
    V. 4 - Therefore they that were scattered abroad went everywhere preaching the word. If we won't go our ownselves - God will make a way. They did fine in Jerusalem, but the Lord wanted it to the ends of the earth.
  • Irene123
    vs. 9-12; all these people were worshippers of witchcraft - for YEARS! And here comes Phillip, preaches about Jesus whom they had NEVER heard and - a MULTITUDE were converted and were - BAPTIZED!! I believe all of it, but how miraculous!!! How GLORIOUS. And we can see that today if we will but have the faith, pray and fast for it; to TRULY care for lost souls.

    To die out of the old ways is not always easy but if you just empty your heart in sincerity God will cleanse you. 1.Death = Repentance 2. Burial = Baptism in Jesus Name 3. Resurrection = The Holy Ghost, which is the spirit of God that you must receive in order to make heaven it wasn't just for Peter and the Apostles read Acts 5 where they commanded them not to preach Jesus but they obey God.
  • Nene
    If anyone rejects the true plan of salvation of Jesus then all will miss heaven ....in Acts 4:12 tells us there is no other name given under heaven whereby we must be saved it is very important to obey the plan Jesus left us. 1.Is faith 2. Repentance 3. Baptism in Jesus Name 4. Receive the Holy Ghost which is the death, burial and resurrection.

    This particular verse is missing in the New World Translation JW Bible. It was footnoted that this was inserted later and not in the original scripture. I will do my best to research this if this is correct and the implication to it.
  • Kwaku Sarpong
    It is very great to identify in this chapter that the gift of God cannot be purchased with money.
