Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 28:14-15.


Acts 28:15

_ _ And from thence, when the brethren — of Rome

_ _ heard of us — by letter from Puteoli, and probably by the same conveyance which took Julius’ announcement of his arrival.

_ _ they came to meet us as far as Appii Forum — a town forty-one miles from Rome.

_ _ and the Three Taverns — thirty miles from Rome. Thus they came to greet the apostle in two parties, one stopping short at the nearer, the other going on to the more distant place.

_ _ whom when Paul saw, he thanked God — for such a welcome. How sensitive he was to such Christian affection all his Epistles show (Romans 1:9, etc.).

_ _ and took courage — his long-cherished purpose to “see Rome” (Acts 19:21), there to proclaim the unsearchable riches of Christ, and the divine pledge that in this he should be gratified (Acts 23:11), being now about to be auspiciously realized.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 28:11-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 28:15

The brethren — That is, the Christians, came out thence to meet us — It is remarkable that there is no certain account by whom Christianity was planted at Rome. Probably some inhabitants of that city were at Jerusalem on the day of pentecost, Acts 2:10; and being then converted themselves, carried the Gospel thither at their return. Appii — Forum was a town fifty — one miles from Rome; the Three Taverns about thirty. He took courage — He saw Christ was at Rome also, and now forgot all the troubles of his journey.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 28:15

(9) And from thence, when the brethren heard of us, they came to meet us as far as (e) Appii forum, and The three taverns: whom when Paul saw, he thanked God, and took courage.

(9) God never allows his own to be afflicted beyond their strength.

(e) Appius was a paved road made by Appius the blind, with the help of his soldiers, long and broad, and it ran out towards the sea, and there were three taverns on it.
