Bible Commentary for Acts 9:10

Wesley's Notes for Acts 9:10


9:9 And he was three days - An important season! So long he seems to have been in the pangs of the new birth. Without sight - By scales growing over his eyes, to intimate to him the blindness of the state he had been in, to impress him with a deeper sense of the almighty power of Christ, and to turn his thoughts inward, while he was less capable of conversing with outward objects. This was likewise a manifest token to others, of what had happened to him in his journey, and ought to have humbled and convinced those bigoted Jews, to whom he had been sent from the sanhedrim.

9:11 Behold he is praying - He was shown thus to Ananias.

9:12 A man called Ananias - His name also was revealed to Saul.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 9:10


Ac 9:10 A certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias. He is named nowhere but in connection with the conversion of Saul. To him said the Lord in a vision. As in the case of Philip sent by the angel to the eunuch (Ac 8:26), so he is sent by revelation to Saul. A revelation was needful from the fact that Saul was a terror to the church and all would avoid him.
