Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 13:8-12.


Acts 13:9

_ _ Then Saul ... also ... called Paul — and henceforward Paul only; a softening of his former name, in accommodation to Roman ears, and (as the word signifies “little”) probably with allusion as elsewhere to his insignificance of stature and appearance (2 Corinthians 10:1, 2 Corinthians 10:10) [Webster and Wilkinson].

_ _ filled with the Holy Ghost — the Spirit coming mightily upon him.

_ _ set his eyes on him and said — Henceforward Barnabas sinks into the background. The whole soul of his great colleague, now drawn out, as never before, shoots, by the lightning gaze of his eye, through the dark and tortuous spirit of the sorcerer. What a picture!

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 13:4-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 13:9

Then Saul, who was also called Paul — It is not improbable, that coming now among the Romans, they would naturally adapt his name to their own language, and so called him Paul instead of Saul. Perhaps the family of the proconsul might be the first who addressed to or spoke of him by this name. And from this time, being the apostle of the Gentiles, he himself used the name which was more familiar to them.
