Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 1:15-26.


Acts 1:24

_ _ prayed and said, Thou, Lord, etc. — “The word ‘Lord,’ placed absolutely, denotes in the New Testament almost universally THE SON; and the words, ‘Show whom Thou hast chosen,’ are decisive. The apostles are just Christ’s messengers: It is He that sends them, and of Him they bear witness. Here, therefore, we have the first example of a prayer offered to the exalted Redeemer; furnishing indirectly the strongest proof of His divinity” [Olshausen].

_ _ which knowest the hearts of all men — See John 2:24, John 2:25; John 21:15-17; Revelation 2:23.
