    SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:32

    ¶ Y así como oyeron de la resurreccin de los muertos, unos se burlaban, y otros decían: Te oiremos acerca de esto otra vez.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 17:32

    Verse 32. When they heard of the resurrection, &c.]
    Paul undoubtedly had not finished his discourse: it is likely that he was about to have proclaimed salvation through Christ crucified; but, on hearing of the resurrection of the body, the assembly instantly broke up; the Epicureans mocking, ecleuazon, began to laugh; and the Stoics saying they would take another opportunity to hear him on that subject. And thus the assembly became dissolved before the apostle had time to finish his discourse, or to draw all the conclusions he had designed from the premises he had laid down. St. Stephen's discourse was interrupted in a similar manner. See chap. vii. 54, and the note there.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 32. When they heard of the resurrection of the dead , etc.] Of a certain man that the
    apostle said God had raised from the dead, though they knew not who he was: some mocked ; at him, and at the doctrine he preached: these very likely were of the Epicurean sect, who disbelieved a future state; though, as Tertullian observes f891 , the doctrine of the resurrection was denied by every sect of the philosophers: it is a doctrine of pure revelation, and what the light of nature never taught men, and by which men being only guided, have declared against, and have treated it with the utmost ridicule and contempt. Pliny reckons it, among childish fancies, and calls it vanity, and downright madness to believe it; as does also Caecilius in Minutius Felix f893 , and who even calls it a lie, and places it among old wives fables; and Celsus in Origen represents it as exceeding detestable, abominable, and impossible. And others said, we will hear thee again of this matter ; some think these were of the Stoic sect, who held a future state, and that the soul would live after the body, and had some notions which looked inclining to this doctrine: however, these thought there might be something in what the apostle said; they could not receive it readily, and yet could not deny it; they were willing to take time to consider of it; and were desirous of hearing him again upon that subject; in which they might be very open and upright; and this might not be a mere excuse to shift off any further hearing at that time, like that of Felix, in ( Acts 24:1-25:27).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 32-34 - The
    apostle was treated with more outward civility at Athens than in some other places; but none more despised his doctrine, or treated i with more indifference. Of all subjects, that which deserves the mos attention gains the least. But those who scorn, will have to bear the consequences, and the word will never be useless. Some will be found who cleave to the Lord, and listen to his faithful servants Considering the judgement to come, and Christ as our Judge, should urg all to repent of sin, and turn to Him. Whatever matter is used, all discourses must lead to Him, and show his authority; our salvation, an resurrection, come from and by Him __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    32. Resurrection. This word was the
    signal for a derisive outburst from the crowd.

    Mocked (ecleuazon). From cleuh, a jest. Only here in New Testament, though a compound, diacleuazw, mock, occurs, according to the best texts, at ch. ii. 13. The force of the imperfect, began to mock, should be given here in the translation, as marking the outbreak of derision. In this remarkable speech of Paul are to be noted: his prudence and tact in not needlessly offending his hearers; his courtesy and spirit of conciliation in recognizing their piety toward their gods; his wisdom and readiness in the use of the inscription "to the unknown God," and in citing their own poets; his meeting the radical errors of every class of his hearers, while seeming to dwell only on points of agreement; his lofty views of the nature of God and the great principle of the unity of the human race; his boldness in proclaiming Jesus and the resurrection among those to whom these truths were foolishness; the wonderful terseness and condensation of the whole, and the rapid but powerful and assured movement of the thought.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    17:32 {The resurrection of the dead} (anastasin nekrwn). Rather, "a resurrection of dead men." No article with either word. The Greeks believed that the souls of men lived on, but they had no conception of resurrection of the body. They had listened with respect till Paul spoke of the actual resurrection of Jesus from the dead as a fact, when they did not care to hear more. {Some mocked} (hoi men ecleuazon). Imperfect active of cleuazw, a common verb (from cleue, jesting, mockery). Only here in the N.T. though late MSS. have it in #2:13 (best MSS. diachleuaz"). Probably inchoative here, began to mock. In contempt at Paul's statement they declined to listen further to " this babbler" (verse #18) who had now lost what he had gained with this group of hearers (probably the light and flippant Epicureans). {But others} (hoi de). A more polite group like those who had invited him to speak (verse #19). They were unconvinced, but had better manners and so were in favor of an adjournment. this was done, though it is not clear whether it was a serious postponement or a courteous refusal to hear Paul further (probably this ). It was a virtual dismissal of the matter. " It is a sad story--the noblest of ancient cities and the noblest man of history--and he never cared to look on it again" (Furneaux).
