Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 23:23-24

_ _ two hundred soldiers — a formidable guard for such an occasion; but Roman officials felt their honor concerned in the preservation of the public peace, and the danger of an attempted rescue would seem to require it. The force at Jerusalem was large enough to spare this convoy.

_ _ the third hour of the night — nine o’clock.
