    VERSE (2) -
    Lu 4:16 Joh 18:20

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:2

    Y Pablo, como acostumbraba, entr a ellos, y por tres sbados disput con ellos de las Escrituras,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 17:2

    Verse 2. As his manner was] He constantly offered
    salvation first to the Jews; and for this purpose attended their Sabbath-days' meetings at their synagogues.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. And
    Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them , etc.] To the Jews in their synagogue; for though the Jews had put away the Gospel from them, and the apostle had turned to the Gentiles; yet he still retained a great affection for his countrymen the Jews, and as often as he had opportunity, attended their synagogues, in order to preach the Gospel to them; and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the Scriptures : that is, out of the Old Testament, concerning the Messiah, the characters of him, the work that he was to do, and how he was to suffer and die for the sins of men; and this he did three weeks running, going to their synagogue every sabbath day, when and where the Jews met for worship; and made use of books, which they allowed of, and of arguments they could not disprove.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-9 - The drift and scope of
    Paul's preaching and arguing, was to prove tha Jesus is the Christ. He must needs suffer for us, because he could no otherwise purchase our redemption for us; and he must needs have rise again, because he could not otherwise apply the redemption to us. We are to preach concerning Jesus that he is Christ; therefore we may hop to be saved by him, and are bound to be ruled by him. The unbelievin Jews were angry, because the apostles preached to the Gentiles, tha they might be saved. How strange it is, that men should grudge other the privileges they will not themselves accept! Neither rulers no people need be troubled at the increase of real Christians, even thoug turbulent spirits should make religion the pretext for evil designs. O such let us beware, from such let us withdraw, that we may show desire to act aright in society, while we claim our right to worshi God according to our consciences.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    17:2 {As his
    custom was} (kata to ei"thos t"i Paul"i). The same construction in #Lu 4:16 about Jesus in Nazareth (kata to eiwqos autwi) with the second perfect active participle neuter singular from eqw. Paul's habit was to go to the Jewish synagogue to use the Jews and the God-fearers as a springboard for his work among the Gentiles. {For three Sabbaths} (epi sabbata tria). Probably the reference is to the first three Sabbaths when Paul had a free hand in the synagogue as at first in Antioch in Pisidia. Luke does not say that Paul was in Thessalonica only three weeks. He may have spoken there also during the week, though the Sabbath was the great day. Paul makes it plain, as Furneaux shows, that he was in Thessalonica a much longer period than three weeks. The rest of the time he spoke, of course, outside of the synagogue. Paul implies an extended stay by his language in #1Th 1:8. The church consisted mainly of Gentile converts (#2Th 3:4,7,8) and seems to have been well organized (#1Th 5:12). He received help while there several times from Philippi (#Php 4:16) and even so worked night and day to support himself (#1Th 2:9). His preaching was misunderstood there in spite of careful instruction concerning the second coming of Christ (#1Th 4:13-5:5; 2Th 2:1-12). {Reasoned} (dielexato). First aorist middle indicative of dialegomai, old verb in the active to select, distinguish, qen to revolve in the mind, to converse (interchange of ideas), qen to teach in the Socratic ("dialectic") method of question and answer (cf. dielegeto in verse #17), qen simply to discourse, but always with the idea of intellectual stimulus. With these Jews and God-fearers Paul appealed to the Scriptures as text and basis (apo) of his ideas.
