Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 3:12-16.


Acts 3:13

_ _ The God of Abraham, etc. — (See on Acts 2:22; see on Acts 2:36).

_ _ hath glorified his Son Jesus — rather, “his Servant Jesus,” as the same word is rendered in Matthew 12:18, but in that high sense in which Isaiah applies it always to Messiah (Isaiah 42:1; Isaiah 49:6; Isaiah 52:13; Isaiah 53:11). When “Son” is intended a different word is used.

_ _ whom ye delivered up, etc. — With what heroic courage does Peter here charge his auditors with the heaviest of all conceivable crimes, and with what terrific strength of language are these charges clothed!

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 3:12-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 3:13

The God of our fathers — This was wisely introduced in the beginning of his discourse, that it might appear they taught no new religion, inconsistent with that of Moses, and were far from having the least design to divert their regards from the God of Israel. Hath glorified his Son — By this miracle, whom ye delivered up — When God had given him to you, and when ye ought to have received him as a most precious treasure, and to have preserved him with all your power.
