Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 19:28-29.


Acts 19:29

_ _ having caught Gaius and Aristarchus — disappointed of Paul, as at Thessalonica (Acts 17:5, Acts 17:6). They are mentioned in Acts 20:4; Acts 27:2; Romans 16:23; 1 Corinthians 1:14; and probably 3 John 1:1. If it was in the house of Aquila and Priscilla that he found an asylum (see 1 Corinthians 16:9), that would explain Romans 16:3, Romans 16:4, where he says of them that “for his life they laid down their own necks” [Howson].

_ _ rushed ... into the theatre — a vast pile, whose ruins are even now a wreck of immense grandeur [Sir C. Fellowes, Asia Minor, 1839].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 19:21-41.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 19:29

They rushed with one accord — Demetrius and his company, into the theatre — Where criminals were wont to be thrown to the wild beasts, dragging with them Gaius and Aristarchus — When they could not find Paul. Probably they hoped to oblige them to fight with the wild beasts, as some think St. Paul had done before.
