Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 4:1-12.


Acts 4:12

_ _ Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved — How sublimely does the apostle, in these closing words, shut up these rulers of Israel to Jesus for salvation, and in what universal and emphatic terms does he hold up his Lord as the one Hope of men!

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 4:5-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 4:12

There is no other name whereby we must he saved — The apostle uses a beautiful gradation, from the temporal deliverance which had been wrought for the poor cripple, by the power of Christ, to that of a much nobler and more important kind, which is wrought by Christ for impotent and sinful souls. He therein follows the admirable custom of his great Lord and Master, who continually took occasion from earthly to speak of spiritual things.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 4:12

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other (f) name (g) under heaven (h) given among men, whereby we must be saved.

(f) There is no other man, or no other power and authority at all; and this kind of speech was common among the Jews, and arose from this, that when we are in danger we call upon those at whose hands we look for help.

(g) Anywhere: and this shows us the largeness of Christ's kingdom.

(h) Of God.
