Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 13:44-48.


Acts 13:46

_ _ Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, etc. — This is in the highest style of a last and solemn protestation.

_ _ It was necessary that the word should first have been spoken to you — See the direction of Christ in Luke 24:47; also Romans 1:16.

_ _ since ye judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life — pass sentence upon yourselves.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 13:42-52.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 13:46

Then Paul and Barnabas speaking boldly, said — Those who hinder others must be publicly reproved. It was necessary — Though ye are not worthy: he shows that he had not preached to them, from any confidence of their believing, but seeing ye judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life — They indeed judged none but themselves worthy of it. Yet their rejecting of the Gospel was the same as saying, "We are unworthy of eternal life." Behold! — A thing now present! An astonishing revolution! We turn to the Gentiles — Not that they left off preaching to the Jews in other places. But they now determined to lose no more time at Antioch on their ungrateful countrymen, but to employ themselves wholly in doing what they could for the conversion of the Gentiles there.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 13:46

(19) Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and (s) judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.

(19) The Gospel is proclaimed to the Gentiles by the express commandment of God.

(s) By this your doing you pronounce as it were sentence upon yourselves, and judge yourselves.
