    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:48

    Y les mand bautizar en el Nombre del Seor Jess. Y le rogaron que se quedase por algunos días.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 10:48

    Verse 48. To be
    baptized in the name of the Lord.] That is, in the name of Jesus Christ; which implied their taking upon them the public profession of Christianity, and believing on Christ Jesus as their saviour and Sovereign; for, as they were baptized in his name, they professed thereby to be his disciples and followers.

    Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.] They felt the necessity of farther instruction, and prayed him to continue his ministry a little longer among them; and to this he no doubt consented. This was properly speaking, the commencement of the Christian Church, as composed of Jews and Gentiles, partaking of the same baptism, united under the same Head, made partakers of the same Spirit, and associated in the same aggregate body. Now was the middle wall of partition broken down, and the Gentiles admitted to the same privileges with the Jews.

    1. GOD is wonderful in all his works, whether they be works of creation, providence, or grace. Every thing proclaims his power, his wisdom, and his goodness. Every where we learn this truth, which is indispensably necessary for all to know who desire to acknowledge God in all their ways that "there is nothing which concerns their present or eternal welfare in which God does not interest himself." We often, to our great spiritual detriment, lose sight of this truth, because we think that the MAJESTY of God is too great to be occupied with those common occurrences by which we are often much affected, in things which relate, not only to our present, but also to our eternal interests. This is impossible; for God is our father, and, being every where present, he sees our state, and his eye affects his heart.

    2. Let the reader examine the chain of Providence (composed indeed of very minute links) brought to light in the conversion of Cornelius, the instruction of Peter, and opening the door of faith to the Gentiles, and he will be convinced that "God has way every where, and that all things serve the purposes of his will." We have already seen how particularly, both by gracious and providential workings, God prepared the mind of Cornelius to receive instruction, and the mind of Peter to give it; so that the receiver and giver were equally ready to be workers together with God. This is a general economy. He who feels his want may rest assured that, even then, God has made the necessary provisions for his supply; and that the very sense of the want is a proof that the provision is already made. Why then should we lose time in deploring wretchedness, for the removal of which God has made the necessary preparations? Mourning over our miseries will never supply the lack of faith in Christ, and very seldom tends even to humble the heart.

    3. As the eye of God is ever upon us, he knows our trials as well as our wants; and here, also, he makes the necessary provision for our support.

    We may be called to suffer, but his grace will be sufficient for us; and, as our troubles increase, so shall the means of our support. And even these trials and temptations will be pressed into our service, for all things work together for good to them that love God, Rom. viii. 28.

    4. We must beware neither to despise outward rites in religion, nor to rest in them. Most people do either the one or the other. God gives us outward helps, because he knows we need them. But do we not sometimes imagine ourselves to be above that which, because of our scantiness of grace, is really above us? We certainly may over-rate ourselves, and under-rate God's bounties. He who is taught by the Spirit of God will be saved from both.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 48. And he commanded them to be baptized , etc.] By some of the six brethren that came with him from Joppa, who might all of them, at least some of them, be ministers of the Gospel: and this he ordered to be done in the name of the Lord ; that is, of the Lord Jesus Christ, though not to the exclusion of the Father, and of the Spirit: perhaps the phrase, in the name of the Lord, may stand connected with the word commanded; and the sense be, that in the name of the Lord, and by authority from him, he ordered them to be baptized: then prayed they him to tarry certain days ; partly to express their gratitude to him for the favour they had received through him as an instrument, and partly that they might be more instructed and established by him. And these baptized persons very likely laid the foundation of a Gospel church state in this place, which we find to continue in succeeding ages; in the second century Theophilus presided over it; and in the third century Origen and Pamphilus, were presbyters of it; and in the same age, succeeding one another, Theoctistus, Domnus, and Theotecnus were bishops of it; and in the beginning of the fourth century, Eusebius the famous ecclesiastical historian was bishop of this church, after him Acacius; in the fifth century Gelasius the successor of Eunomius bore the same office in it; and in the sixth century the bishop of this place was present in the fifth synod at Constantinople; and in the seventh century it appears there was a church in this place: in which century the Arabians, after they had besieged this city seven years, took it, and killed seven thousand persons in it; and since it has been in the hands of the Turks; and this seems to have put an end to the ecclesiastical state of this place, as Christian f546 .

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 44-48 - The Holy
    Ghost fell upon others after they were baptized, to confir them in the faith; but upon these Gentiles before they were baptized to show that God does not confine himself to outward signs. The Holy Ghost fell upon those who were neither circumcised nor baptized; it is the Spirit that quickeneth, the flesh profiteth nothing. They magnifie God, and spake of Christ and the benefits of redemption. Whatever gif we are endued with, we ought to honour God with it. The believing Jew who were present, were astonished that the gift of the Holy Ghost wa poured out upon the Gentiles also. By mistaken notions of things, we make difficult for ourselves as to the methods of Divine providence an grace. As they were undeniably baptized with the Holy Ghost, Pete concluded they were not to be refused the baptism of water, and the ordinance was administered. The argument is conclusive; can we deny the sign to those who have received the things signified? Those who have some acquaintance with Christ, cannot but desire more. Even those wh have received the Holy Ghost, must see their need of daily learnin more of the truth __________________________________________________________________

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    10:48 {Commanded} (prosetaxen). First aorist
    active indicative. Peter himself abstained from baptizing on this occasion (cf. Paul in #1Co 1:14). Evidently it was done by the six Jewish brethren. {Them to be baptized} (autous baptisqenai). Accusative of general reference with the first aorist passive infinitive. {In the name of Jesus Christ} (en twi onomati iesou cristou). The essential name in Christian baptism as in #2:38; 19:5. But these passages give the authority for the act, not the formula that was employed (Alvah Hovey in Hackett's _Commentary_. See also chapter on the Baptismal Formula in my _The Christ of the Logia_). "Golden days" (aurei dies, Bengel) were these for the whole group.
