Acts 9:29

_ _ disputed against the Grecians — (See on Acts 6:1); addressing himself specially to them, perhaps, as being of his own class, and that against which he had in the days of his ignorance been the fiercest.

_ _ they went about to slay him — Thus was he made to feel, throughout his whole course, what he himself had made others so cruelly to feel, the cost of discipleship.
