Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 13:3

_ _ laid their hands on them — (See on Acts 6:6) — “recommending them to the grace of God for the work which they had to fulfil” (Acts 14:26).

_ _ sent them away — with the double call — of the Spirit first, and next of the Church. So clothed, their mission is thus described: “They being sent forth by the Holy Ghost.” Have we not here for all time the true principle of appointment to sacred offices?

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 13:1-3.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
