Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 2:41-47

_ _ Acts 2:41-47. Beautiful beginnings of the Christian Church.

_ _ they that gladly received his word were baptized — “It is difficult to say how three thousand could be baptized in one day, according to the old practice of a complete submersion; and the more as in Jerusalem there was no water at hand except Kidron and a few pools. The difficulty can only be removed by supposing that they already employed sprinkling, or baptized in houses in large vessels. Formal submersion in rivers, or larger quantities of water, probably took place only where the locality conveniently allowed it” [Olshausen].

_ _ the same day there were added to them about three thousand souls — fitting inauguration of the new kingdom, as an economy of the Spirit!

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 2:37-41.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 2:41

And there were added — To the hundred and twenty.
