    SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:12

    Así que creyeron muchos de ellos; y mujeres griegas honestas, y no pocos hombres.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 17:12

    Verse 12. Therefore many of them believed] From the manner in which they heard, received, and
    examined the word preached to them, it was not likely they could be deceived. And, as it was the truth that was proclaimed to them, it is no wonder that they apprehended, believed, and embraced it.

    Of honourable women which were Greeks] Probably mere heathens are meant; and these were some of the chief families in the place. Thus we find that the preaching of Paul at Berea was made the instrument of converting both Jews and Gentiles.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. Therefore many of them believed , etc.] What the apostle preached, and in Jesus of Nazareth, as the true Messiah, and professed their faith in him, upon finding, through reading and searching the Scriptures, that the characters of the Messiah agreed in him, and that what the apostle delivered were entirely consonant to those writings: also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men not a few ; besides the Jews, there were Gentiles also, both men and women; who were proselytes to the Jewish religion, and who were persons of figure and credit, especially the women, who were also converted and believed in Christ. These converts were the beginning of a Gospel church state in this place, which continued many ages after. Timon, one of the first seven deacons of the church at Jerusalem, is said to be bishop of Berea; though, according to others, Onesimus, the servant of Philemon, was the first bishop of this church: even in the fifth century mention is made of Lucas, bishop of Berea, who was present in the synods of Chalcedon and Ephesus; yea, in the ninth century, there were Christians dwelling in this place f856 .

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 10-15 - The
    Jews in Berea applied seriously to the study of the word preache unto them. They not only heard Paul preach on the sabbath, but dail searched the Scriptures, and compared what they read with the fact related to them. The doctrine of Christ does not fear inquiry advocates for his cause desire no more than that people will fully an fairly examine whether things are so or not. Those are truly noble, an likely to be more and more so, who make the Scriptures their rule, an consult them accordingly. May all the hearers of the gospel become lik those of Berea, receiving the word with readiness of mind, an searching the Scriptures daily, whether the things preached to them ar so.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    12.
    Honorable women. See on verse 4, and Mark xv. 43.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    17:12 {Many therefore} (polloi
    men oun). As a result of this Bible study. {Also of the Greek women of honorable estate}. The word hellenis means Greek woman, but the word gune is added. In particular women of rank (euscemonwn, from eu and ecw, graceful figure and the honorable standing) as in #13:50 (#Mr 15:43). Probably Luke means by implication that the "menw (andrwn) were also noble Greeks though he does not expressly say so. So qen the Jews were more open to the message, the convert or God-fearers followed suit, with "not a few" (ouk oligoi) real Greeks (both men and women) believing. It was quick and fine work.
