Acts 26:6-7

_ _ I ... am judged for the hope of the promise made ... to our fathers — “for believing that the promise of Messiah, the Hope of the Church (Acts 13:32; Acts 28:20) has been fulfilled in Jesus of Nazareth risen from the dead.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 26:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 26:6

And now — Acts 26:6-8 are in a kind of parenthesis, and show that what the Pharisees rightly taught concerning the resurrection, Paul likewise asserted at this day. Acts 26:9is connected with Acts 26:5. For Pharisaism impelled him to persecute. I stand in judgment for the hope of the promise — Of the resurrection. So it was in effect. For unless Christ had risen, there could have been no resurrection of the dead. And it was chiefly for testifying the resurrection of Christ, that the Jews still persecuted him.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 26:6

(3) And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made of God unto our fathers:

(3) There are three chief and principal witnesses of true doctrine: God, the true fathers, and the consent of the true Church of God.
