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 8:33

  • I think this refers to the point that christ was abandoned....no friends no voices to declare who he was..who was his father and his father and past generations, declaring his lineage. But instead he was treated as a reject...no one to speak for his righteous acts, or righteousness.
  • Who shall declare HIS generation? for HIS LIFE is taken from the earth...means that Our LORD JESUSCHRIST did not had any children decendants.
  • I am going to suggest something that no other person has. Matt. 12:8 calls the son of man the LORD of the sabbath (relates to rest and the number 7). The ministry of Christ started about age 30 and was cut short at age 33 1/2. His ministry should have gone another 3 1/2 years accordingly if He is Lord of shabbat. The first part of His ministry was the introduction to man concerning the salvation of GOD as to the acceptable sacrifice through the fulfillment of the Holy scriptures. I have to make an assumption that the second part to be completed yet is Christ's just judgment of mankind. we can see this occurring in the book of revelation. This wrath of GOD is 3 1/2 years. The first 3 1/2 years of Jacobs trouble is brought by the so named Antichrist. This is supported by some scholarly understanding of Daniel, Revelation, Corinthians, and Thessalonians. I think perhaps the judgment that Christ was taken from was the judgment GOD the Father has committed to His son. It needs further confirmation by study using only the Holy Scriptures.I realize this is a different view, but keep this in mind....the number 7 is a number reserved throughout scripture pertaining to GOD or works of.
