    VERSE (3) -
    Ac 24:27; 25:9 Joh 12:43 Ga 1:10 1Th 2:4

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:3

    Y viendo que había agradado a los judíos, pas adelante para prender tambin a Pedro. (Eran entonces los días de los panes sin levadura.)

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 12:3

    Verse 3. He proceeded-to take Peter also.] He supposed that these two were
    pillars on which the infant cause rested; and that, if these were removed, the building must necessarily come down.

    The days of unleavened bread.] About the latter end of March or beginning of April; but whether in the third or fourth year of the Emperor Claudius, or earlier or later, cannot be determined.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 3. And because he saw it pleased the Jews , etc.] That is, as Bezas ancient copy adds, his stretching out his hands upon the faithful; this pleased the Jews, a bloodthirsty generation of men, who had killed the prophets, and the Lord Jesus, and who were now greedy after the death of the apostles: it may easily be seen from what principle and spirit Herod acted; it was not out of regard to the Jewish religion, rites, and ceremonies, but to ingratiate himself into the affections of the people: he proceeded further to take Peter also ; a principal apostle, and who was well known, and against whom the Jews had doubtless a particular antipathy, and would have been glad to have been rid of him; this Herod was, sensible of, and therefore to please them, ordered him to be taken up: then were the days of unleavened bread ; or the feast of the passover.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-5 - James was one of the sons of
    Zebedee, whom Christ told that they shoul drink of the cup that he was to drink of, and be baptized with the baptism that he was to be baptized with, Mt 20:23. Now the words of Christ were made good in him; and if we suffer with Christ, we shal reign with him. Herod imprisoned Peter: the way of persecution, as of other sins, is downhill; when men are in it, they cannot easily stop Those make themselves an easy prey to Satan, who make it their busines to please men. Thus James finished his course. But Peter, being designed for further services, was safe; though he seemed now marke out for a speedy sacrifice. We that live in a cold, prayerles generation, can hardly form an idea of the earnestness of these holy men of old. But if the Lord should bring on the church an awfu persecution like this of Herod, the faithful in Christ would learn what soul-felt prayer is.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    3. He proceeded to take (proseqeto sullabein). Rev.,
    seize. Lit., he added to take. A Hebrew form of expression. Compare Luke xix. 11, he added and spake; Luke xx. 12, again he sent a third; lit., he added to send.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    12:3 {That it pleased the
    Jews} (hoti areston estin tois ioudaiois). Indirect assertion with the present tense estin retained. areston is the verbal adjective from areskw followed by the dative as in #Joh 8:29. {Proceeded to seize} (proseqeto sullabein). A patent Hebraism in #Lu 20:11f. already, and nowhere else in the N.T. It occurs in the LXX (#Ge 4:2; 8:12; 18:29, etc.). Second aorist middle indicative of prostiqemi and the second aorist active infinitive of sullambanw. Literally, he added to seize, he seized Peter in addition to James. {The days of unleavened bread} (hemerai twn azumwn). By this parenthesis Luke locates the time of the year when Peter was arrested, the passover. It was a fine occasion for Agrippa to increase his favor among the crowds of Jews there by extra zeal against the Christians. It is possible that Luke obtained his information about this incident from John Mark for at his Mother's house the disciples gathered (#12:12).
