Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 10:36-38.


Acts 10:38

_ _ Now God anointed Jesus of Nazareth — rather, “Jesus of Nazareth (as the burden of that ‘published word’), how God anointed Him.”

_ _ with the Holy Ghost and with power — that is, at His baptism, thus visibly proclaiming Him MESSIAH, “the Lord’s Christ.” See Luke 4:18-21. For it is not His unction for personal holiness at His incarnation that is referred to — as many of the Fathers and some moderns take it — but His investiture with the insignia of the Messianic office, in which He presented Himself after His baptism to the acceptance of the people.

_ _ went about doing good — holding up the beneficent character of all His miracles, which was their predicted character (Isaiah 35:5, Isaiah 35:6, etc.).

_ _ healing all that were oppressed of the devil — whether in the form of demoniacal possessions, or more indirectly, as in her “whom Satan had bound with a spirit of infirmity eighteen years” (Luke 13:16); thereby showing Himself the Redeemer from all evil.

_ _ for God was with him — Thus gently does the apostle rise to the supreme dignity of Christ with which he closes, accommodating himself to his hearers.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 10:34-43.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 10:38

How God anointed Jesus — Particularly at his baptism, thereby inaugurating him to his office: with the Holy Ghost and with power — It is worthy our remark, that frequently when the Holy Ghost is mentioned there is added a word particularly adapted to the present circumstance. So the deacons were to be full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, Acts 6:3. Barnabas was full of the Holy Ghost and faith, Acts 11:24. The disciples were filled with joy, and with the Holy Ghost, Acts 13:52. And here, where his mighty works are mentioned, Christ himself is said to be anointed with the Holy Ghost and with power. For God was with him — He speaks sparingly here of the majesty of Christ, as considering the state of his hearers.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 10:38

How God (q) anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

(q) This manner of speaking is taken from an old custom of the Jews, who used to anoint their kings and priests, because of which it came to pass to call those anointed upon whom God bestowed gifts and virtues.
