Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 17:16-17.


Acts 17:17

_ _ Therefore disputed — or, discussed.

_ _ he in the synagogue with the Jews — The sense is not, “Therefore went he to the Jews,” because the Gentile Athenians were steeped in idolatry; but, “Therefore set he himself to lift up his voice to the idol city, but, as his manner was, he began with the Jews.”

_ _ and with the devout persons — Gentile proselytes. After that,

_ _ in the market — the Agora, or place of public concourse.

_ _ daily with them that met with him — or “came in his way.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary
