Acts 17:3

_ _ Opening and alleging that Christ must needs have suffered, etc. — His preaching, it seems, was chiefly expository, and designed to establish from the Old Testament Scriptures (1) that the predicted Messiah was to be a suffering and dying, and therefore a rising, Messiah; (2) that this Messiah was none other than Jesus of Nazareth.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 17:1-9.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 17:3

(2) Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ.

(2) Christ is therefore the mediator, because he was crucified and rose again: and he is certainly not to be rejected because the cross is shameful.
