Acts 15:26

_ _ Men that have hazarded — literally, “rendered up,” as in will they did.

_ _ their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ — Noble testimony to those beloved men! It was doubtless prompted more immediately by the narrative they had just listened to from their own lips (Acts 15:12), and judiciously inserted in this letter, to give them the highest weight as the bearers of it, along with their own deputies.

_ _ Judas and Silas ... shall tell you the same ... by mouth — Mark here how considerate and tender it was to send men who would be able to say of Barnabas and Paul what could not be expected to come from themselves.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 15:22-35.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
