Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 9:17-19

_ _ Ananias went his way, and putting his hands on him, said, Brother Saul — How beautifully childlike is the obedience of Ananias to “the heavenly vision!”

_ _ the Lord, even Jesus — This clearly shows in what sense the term “Lord” is used in this book. It is JESUS that is meant, as almost invariably in the Epistles also.

_ _ who appeared unto thee in the way — This knowledge by an inhabitant of Damascus of what had happened to Saul before entering it, would show him at once that this was the man whom Jesus had already prepared him to expect.

_ _ and be filled with the Holy Ghost — which Ananias probably, without any express instructions on that subject, took it for granted would descend upon him; and not necessarily after his baptism [Baumgarten, Webster and Wilkinson] — for Cornelius and his company received it before theirs (Acts 10:44-48) — but perhaps immediately after the recovery of his sight by the laying on of Ananias’ hands.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 9:10-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 9:17

The Lord hath sent me — Ananias does not tell Saul all which Christ had said concerning him. It was not expedient that he should know yet to how great a dignity he was called.
