Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 24:5-8

_ _ a pestilent fellow — a plague, or pest.

_ _ and a mover of sedition among all the Jews — by exciting disturbances among them.

_ _ throughout the world — (See on Luke 2:1). This was the first charge; and true only in the sense explained on Acts 16:20.

_ _ a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes — the second charge; and true enough.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 24:5

For we have found this man [a] (c) pestilent [fellow], and a mover of sedition among all the Jews throughout the world, and a (d) ringleader of the sect of the (e) Nazarenes:

(c) Literally, "a plague".

(d) As one would say, a ringleader, or a flag bearer.

(e) So they scoffingly called the Christians, taking the name from the towns where they thought that Christ was born, whereupon it happened that Julian the apostate called Christ a Galilean.
