    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:15

    ¶ Y en aquellos días, Pedro, levantndose en medio de los discípulos, dijo (y era el nmero de los nombres como de ciento veinte):

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 1:15

    Verse 15. In the midst of the
    disciples] maqhtwn; but instead of this, adelfwn, brethren, is the reading of ABC, a few others, with the Coptic, AEthiopic, Armenian, and Vulgate. This seems the best reading, because of what immediately follows; for it was not among the disciples merely that he stood, but among the whole company, which amounted to one hundred and twenty. It is remarkable that this was the number which the Jews required to form a council in any city; and it is likely that in reference to this the disciples had gathered together, with themselves, the number of one hundred and twenty, chosen out of the many who had been already converted by the ministry of our Lord, the twelve disciples, and the seventy-two whom he had sent forth to preach, Luke x. 1, &c., thus they formed a complete council in presence of which the important business of electing a person in the place of Judas was to be transacted.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. And in those days Peter stood up , etc.] That is, in one of the days after Christs ascension, and before the
    day of Pentecost, whilst the disciples were waiting for the promise of the Spirit. The Ethiopic version reads, on that day; as if it was the same day they came first into Jerusalem, and went into the upper room; and which is likely enough; for no time was to be lost in choosing one in the room of Judas; when Peter, not only as a forward person, and who had been used to be the first mover and actor in any affair; but as willing to show his zeal for Christ, whom he had so lately denied, and as being the senior man in company, as well as the minister of the circumcision, rises, and stands up, as persons used to do, when about to make an oration, and in respect and reverence to the persons addressed: in the midst of the disciples ; not only the other ten, but the whole hundred and twenty. The Alexandrian copy, and some others, read, in the midst of the brethren, and so reads the Vulgate Latin version; and the Ethiopic version, in the midst of his own brethren; and he said what is expressed in the following verses, which before the historian relates, he inserts in a parenthesis this clause, the number of the names ; that is, of persons; (see Revelation 11:13).

    Some copies read, of the men, and so the Vulgate Latin and Syriac versions; who together , all put together in one sum, or as meeting together in one and the same place, or as agreeing in the same faith and judgment, so the Arabic version, and there was there a company whose names and wills agreed in this same opinion; they were all in one place, and of the same mind; and the sum of them were about an hundred and twenty ; among whom were the eleven apostles, and seventy disciples, which made eighty one; so that there were thirty nine persons more in this company: not that it is to be thought that these were all that were in Jerusalem that believed in Christ; but these were the number of the persons that met and embodied together in a church state, and who not only gave themselves to the Lord, but to one another, by the will of God; and their names being taken and registered, the historian calls the account of them, the number of the names, and not persons; though he means persons. This was a number pretty famous among the Jews; the sanhedrim of Ezra, called the men of the great synagogue, consisted of an hundred and twenty elders; the last of which was Simeon the just, and he comprehended the hundred and twenty f32 . And such a number was requisite for a sanhedrim in any place; it is asked, how many must there be in a city, that it may be fit for a sanhedrim? an hundred and twenty; R. Nehemiah says two hundred and thirty f33 : but the decision is according to the former: hence they say f34 , that they fix in every city in Israel, where there is an hundred and twenty, or more, a lesser sanhedrim. -A city in which there is not an hundred and twenty, they place three judges, for there is no sanhedrim less than three.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 15-26 - The great thing the apostles were to attest to the world, was, Christ' resurrection; for that was the great proof of his being the Messiah and the foundation of our hope in him. The apostles were ordained, no to wordly dignity and dominion, but to preach Christ, and the power of his resurrection. An appeal was made to God; "Thou, Lord, who knowes the hearts of all men," which we do not; and better than they know their own. It is fit that God should choose his own servants; and s far as he, by the disposals of his providence, or the gifts of his Spirit, shows whom he was chosen, or what he has chosen for us, we ought to fall in with his will. Let us own his hand in the determinin everything which befalls us, especially in those by which any trust ma be committed to us __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    15. Of the
    disciples (twn maqhtwn). The best texts read ajdelfwn, brethren.

    The number of the names together were about, etc. (hn te oclov onomatwn epi to auto). Much better as Rev., and there was a multitude of persons gathered together, about, etc. Oclov, multitude, would not be used of a number about to be stated.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:15 {Brethren} (adelfwn). Codex Bezae has "disciples." {Multitude of persons} (oclos onomatwn). Literally, multitude of names. this Hebraistic use of onoma=person occurs in the LXX (#Nu 1:2; 18:20; 3:40,43; 26:53) and in #Re 3:4; 11:13. {Together} (epi to auto). The word "gathered" is not in the Greek here, but it does occur in #Mt 22:34 and that is undoubtedly the idea in #Lu 17:35 as in #Ac 2:1,44,47; 1Co 11:20; 14:23. So also here. They were in the same place (to auto). {About a hundred and twenty} (hws hekaton eikosi). A crowd for "the upper room." No special significance in the number 120, just the number there.
