_ _ and ye shall be witnesses unto me ... in Jerusalem ... in all Judea ... and unto the uttermost part of the earthThis order of apostolic preaching and success supplies the proper key to the plan of the Acts, which relates first the progress of the Gospel “in Jerusalem, and all Judea and Samaria” (the first through ninth chapters), and then “unto the uttermost part of the earth” (the tenth through twenty-eighth chapters).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 1:6-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 1:8

But ye shall receive power — and shall be witnesses to me — That is, ye shall be empowered to witness my Gospel, both by your preaching and suffering.
