      1  Paul declares at large how he was converted to the faith,
    17  and called to his apostleship.
    22  At the very mentioning of the Gentiles the people exclaim on
        him.
    24  He would have been scourged;
    25  but claiming the privilege of a Roman, he escapes.

    - the brethren.
       * :1 Ro 9:3,4
    
    
    VERSE 6 
     - that.
      It is evident that the apostle considered his extraordinary
      conversion as a most complete demonstration of the truth of
      Christianity; and when all the particulars of his education,
      his previous religious principles, his zeal, his enmity
      against Christians, and his prospects of secular honors and
      preferments by persecuting them, are compared with the
      subsequent part of his life, and the sudden transition from a
      furious persecutor to a zealous preacher of the gospel, in
      which he labored and suffered to the end of his life, and for
      which he died a martyr, it must convince every candid and
      impartial person that no rational account can be given of this
      change, except what he himself assigns; and consequently, if
      that be true, that Christianity is Divine.

    VERSE 24 
     - The chief.
      As the chief captain did not understand Hebrew, he was
      ignorant of the charge against Paul, and also of the defence
      which the apostle had made; but as he saw that they grew more
      and more outrageous, he supposed that Paul must have given
      them the highest provocation, and therefore, according to the
      barbarous and irrational practice which has existed in all
      countries, he determined to put him to the torture, in order
      to make him confess his crime.
    
       * Ac 21:31,32; 23:10,27
    - that he should.
       * :25-29; 16:22,23,37 Joh 19:1 Heb 11:35
    
    
    VERSE 25 
     - the centurion.
       * Ac 10:1; 23:17; 27:1,3,43 Mt 8:8; 27:54
    - Is it.
      By the Roman law, no civil officer was allowed to punish a Roman
      citizen capitally, or by inflicting stripes, or even binding
      him; and the single expression, I am a Roman citizen, arrested
      their severest decrees, and obtained, if not an escape, at
      least a delay of his punishment.
    
       * :27,28; 16:37; 25:16
    
    
    VERSE 26 
     - Take.
       * :29; 23:27
    
    VERSE 27
    
    
    VERSE 28 
     - But.
      It is extremely probable that the inhabitants of Tarsus, born
      in that city, had the same rights and privileges as Roman
      citizens, in consequence of a grant or charter from Julius
      Caesar, from whom it was called Juliopolis.  But if this were
      not the case, Paul's father, or some of his ancestors,
      might have been rewarded with the freedom of the city of Rome,
      for his fidelity and bravery in some military service, as
      Josephus says several of the Jews were; or his father might
      have obtained it by purchase, as in the instance of the chief
      captain.
    
       * :28
    
    
    VERSE 29 
     - examined him.  or, tortured him.
       * :24 Heb 11:35
    - the chief.
       * :25,26; 16:38,39
    
    
    VERSE 30 
     - because.
       * Ac 21:11,33; 23:28; 26:29 Mt 27:2
    - commanded.
       * :5; 5:21; 23:15 Mt 10:17
