Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 28:7-8.


Acts 28:8

_ _ the father of Publius lay sick of a fever — “fevers.” The word was often thus used in the plural number, probably to express recurring attacks.

_ _ and of a bloody flux — “of dysentery.” (The medical accuracy of our historian’s style has been observed here.)

_ _ to whom Paul entered in, and prayed — thereby precluding the supposition that any charm resided in himself.

_ _ and laid his hands on him, and healed him — Thus, as our Lord rewarded Peter for the use of his boat (Luke 5:3, Luke 5:4, etc.), so Paul richly repays Publius for his hospitality. Observe the fulfillment here of two things predicted in Mark 16:18 — the “taking up serpents,” and “recovering of the sick by laying hands on them.”
