    Treasury of Scriptural Knowledge

    VERSE (43) -
    Ac 2:10; 6:5

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:43

    Y despedida la congregacin, muchos de los judíos y de los religiosos proslitos siguieron a Pablo y a Bernab; los cuales hablndoles, les persuadían que permaneciesen en la gracia de Dios.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 13:43

    Verse 43. Many of the
    Jews] Direct descendants from some of the twelve tribes; and religious proselytes, heathens who had been converted to Judaism, and, having submitted to circumcision, had become proselytes of the covenant: though some think that the expression means proselytes of the gate- persons who believed in one God, like the Jews, but who had not received circumcision.

    Persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.] That is, that they should continue to credit the Gospel; to receive the spirit and influence of it; to bring forth the fruits of that spirit; and thus continue under the favour and approbation of God.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 43. Now when the congregation was broken up , etc.] Or the synagogue; not the place, but the people that met in it; when they were dismissed, as the Vulgate Latin and Arabic versions render it; either in a disorderly manner, through the offence the Jews took at Pauls preaching; or if in an orderly way, this was done by mgrwth , the interpreter; so it is said f694 , that R. Hotzpith the interpreter dismissed the people. Many of the Jews and religious proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas ; who were converted by this sermon, and believed in Christ, and cordially embraced the doctrines of the Gospel, that had been preached.

    Piscator thinks that the word religious does not belong to the text, but some way or other crept into it, since it supposes some proselytes not to be religious; whereas, though all religious persons were not proselytes, at least proselytes of righteousness, yet all proselytes were religious persons; but it is retained in all copies and versions: who speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God ; meaning, not that the Jews and proselytes spoke to Paul and Barnabas, and entreated and persuaded them to persevere in preaching the doctrine of the grace of God, notwithstanding the offence some might take at it, and the ill usage they might meet with on account of it; but that Paul and Barnabas took notice of them, and by their following them, and by the conversation they had with them, found that the word had reached their hearts, and that they had embraced the doctrine of the Gospel; wherefore they spoke a word of exhortation to them, beseeching them to continue in it, it springing from the grace of God, and being a declaration of it; and particularly in those special doctrines of grace, which had been insisted on, namely, remission of sins, and free justification by the blood of Christ; for it is more likely, and was more necessary, that these should be exhorted by the apostles, and not the apostles by them.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 42-52 - The Jews opposed the doctrine the apostles preached; and when the could find no objection, they blasphemed Christ and his gospel Commonly those who begin with contradicting, end with blaspheming. But when adversaries of Christ's cause are daring, its advocates should be the bolder. And while many judge themselves unworthy of eternal life others, who appear less likely, desire to hear more of the glad tiding of salvation. This is according to what was foretold in the Ol Testament. What light, what power, what a treasure does this gospe bring with it! How excellent are its truths, its precepts, it promises! Those came to Christ whom the Father drew, and to whom the Spirit made the gospel call effectual, Ro 8:30. As many as wer disposed to eternal life, as many as had concern about their eterna state, and aimed to make sure of eternal life, believed in Christ, i whom God has treasured up that life, and who is the only Way to it; an it was the grace of God that wrought it in them. It is good to se honourable women devout; the less they have to do in the world, the more they should do for their own souls, and the souls of others: but it is sad, when, under colour of devotion to God, they try to sho hatred to Christ. And the more we relish the comforts an encouragements we meet with in the power of godliness, and the fulle our hearts are of them, the better prepared we are to face difficultie in the profession of godliness __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    43.
    Religious (sebomenwn). Lit., worshipping. Compare ver. 50 and ch. xvi. 14.

    Proselytes (proshlutwn). Originally, one who arrives at a place; a stranger; thence of one who comes over to another faith.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    13:43 {When the synagogue broke up} (luqeises tes sunagwges). Genitive absolute of first aorist passive participle of luw. Apparently Paul and Barnabas had gone out before the synagogue was formally dismissed. {Of the devout convert} (twn sebomenwn proselutwn). Of the worshipping convert described in verses #16,25 as "those who fear God" (cf. #16:14) employed usually of the uncircumcised Gentiles who yet attended the synagogue worship, but the word proselutoi (pros, elutos verbal from ercomai, a new-comer) means usually those who had become circumcised (convert of righteousness). Yet the rabbis used it also of convert of the gate who had not yet become circumcised, probably the idea here. In the N.T. the word occurs only in #Mt 23:15; Ac 2:10; 6:5; 13:43. Many (both Jews and convert) followed (ekolouqesan, ingressive aorist active indicative of akolouqew) Paul and Barnabas to hear more without waiting till the next Sabbath. So we are to picture Paul and Barnabas speaking (proslalountes, late compound, in N.T. only here and #28:20) to eager groups. {Urged} (epeiqon). Imperfect active of peiqw, either descriptive (were persuading) or conative (were trying to persuade). Paul had great powers of persuasion (#18:4; 19:8,26; 26:28; 28:23; 2Co 5:11; Ga 1:10). These Jews "were beginning to understand for the first time the true meaning of their national history" (Furneaux), "the grace of God" to them.
