Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 15:9

_ _ put no difference between us and them: purifying their hearts by faith — “Purification” here refers to “sprinkling (of the conscience by the blood of Jesus) from dead works to serve the living God.” (See on 1 Corinthians 6:11). How rich is this brief description of the inward revolution wrought upon the genuine disciples of the Lord Jesus!

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 15:6-21.
