Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 28:21-22.


Acts 28:22

_ _ we desire — “deem it proper”

_ _ to hear of thee what thou thinkest — what are thy sentiments, views, etc. The apparent freedom from prejudice here expressed may have arisen from a prudent desire to avoid endangering a repetition of those dissensions about Christianity to which, probably, Suetonius alludes, and which had led to the expulsion of the Jews under Claudius [Humphry]. See on Acts 18:2.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 28:17-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 28:22

This sect we know is every where spoken against — This is no proof at all of a bad cause, but a very probable mark of a good one.
