    SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:24

    predicando Juan delante de la faz de su venida el bautismo de arrepentimiento a todo el pueblo de Israel.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 13:24

    Verse 24. John-preached-the
    baptism of repentance] On the nature and effects of John's preaching, see the notes on Matt. iii. 1, &c., and Luke iii. 10-15.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 24. When John had first
    preached before his coming , etc.] Or, before the face of his entrance; that is, on his public ministry; for John did not preach before the coming of Christ in the flesh, being born but half a year before him; but before he came forth and was manifest to Israel; before he entered upon his work and office, as a prophet and teacher of the people: and this points out the business of John the Baptist, who was the forerunner of Christ, and went before his face to prepare his way, who gave notice of his coming, and bore testimony to him; and whose testimony the apostle here produces, as being what the Jews could not well reject and deny, he being of so much probity and integrity, and so great a prophet, as he was accounted by all the people; and whom he prepared for the reception of the Messiah, by first preaching; the baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel : he not only administered the ordinance of baptism, but he preached the doctrine of it, opened the nature and design of it, and required repentance and fruits meet for it, in those who came to have it administered to them: for which reason it is called the baptism of repentance; and this he did publicly before all the people, when the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and all Judea, and all the region round about Jordan, came unto him; (see Mark 1:4 Matthew 3:2,3,5,7,8).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-31 - When we come together to
    worship God, we must do it, not only by praye and praise, but by the reading and hearing of the word of God. The bar reading of the Scriptures in public assemblies is not enough; the should be expounded, and the people exhorted out of them. This i helping people in doing that which is necessary to make the wor profitable, to apply it to themselves. Every thing is touched upon in this sermon, which might best prevail with Jews to receive and embrac Christ as the promised Messiah. And every view, however short or faint of the Lord's dealings with his church, reminds us of his mercy an long-suffering, and of man's ingratitude and perverseness. Paul passe from David to the Son of David, and shows that this Jesus is his promised Seed; a Saviour to do that for them, which the judges of ol could not do, to save them from their sins, their worst enemies. When the apostles preached Christ as the Saviour, they were so far from concealing his death, that they always preached Christ crucified. Ou complete separation from sin, is represented by our being buried with Christ. But he rose again from the dead, and saw no corruption: thi was the great truth to be preached.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    24. Before his coming (pro proswpou thv eisodou autou). Lit., before the face of his
    entrance. A Hebrew form of expression.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    13:24 {When John had first
    preached} (prokeruxantos iwanou). Literally, John heralding beforehand, as a herald before the king (#Lu 3:3). Genitive absolute of first aorist active participle of prokerussw, old verb to herald beforehand, here alone in the N.T., though Textus Receptus has it also in #Ac 3:20. {Before his coming} (pro proswpou tes eisodou autou). Literally, before the face of his entering in (here act of entrance as #1Th 1:9, not the gate as in #Heb 10:19). See #Mal 3:1 quoted in #Mt 11:10 (#Lu 7:27) for this Hebrew phrase and also #Lu 1:76. {The baptism of repentance} (baptisma metanoias). Baptism marked by, characterized by (genitive case, case of kind or species) repentance (change of mind and life). The very phrase used of John's preaching in #Mr 1:4; Lu 3:3. It is clear therefore that Paul understood John's ministry and message as did Peter (#Ac 2:38; 10:37).
