Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 3:22-26.


Acts 3:26

_ _ God, having raised up — not from the dead, but having provided, prepared, and given.

_ _ his Son Jesus — “His Servant Jesus” (see on Acts 3:13).

_ _ sent him to bless you — literally, “sent Him blessing you,” as if laden with blessing.

_ _ in turning away every one of you from his iniquities — that is, “Hitherto we have all been looking too much for a Messiah who should shed outward blessings upon the nation generally, and through it upon the world. But we have learned other things, and now announce to you that the great blessing with which Messiah has come laden is the turning away of every one of you from his iniquities.” With what divine skill does the apostle, founding on resistless facts, here drive home to the conscience of his auditors their guilt in crucifying the Lord of Glory; then soothe their awakened minds by assurances of forgiveness on turning to the Lord, and a glorious future as soon as this shall come to pass, to terminate with the Personal Return of Christ from the heavens whither He has ascended; ending all with warnings, from their own Scriptures, to submit to Him if they would not perish, and calls to receive from Him the blessings of salvation.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 3:12-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
