James Rosscup: "This work, originally out in 1857, has proved helpful to many, though it is now far out of date as to literature commenting on Acts. For many basic details verse by verse, it still is of good value and often will help on word meaning and special problems. The fact that it was reprinted is indicative of its respected place in Acts studies." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An annotated bibliography of selected works)

Spurgeon: "In all respects a work of the highest merit."

H enry Alford
(1810-1871)
Acts Commentary
(Read Alford's fascinating brief biography
and Phil Johnson's related comments)

James Rosscup writes that Alford's series on the New Testament "contains much that is valuable in the Greek New Testament… though all of the Greek New Testament words have been changed to English throughout." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works)

John Piper writes ""When I’m stumped with a… grammatical or syntactical or logical [question] in Paul, I go to Henry Alford. Henry Alford… comes closer more consistently than any other human commentator to asking my kinds of questions."

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (Click for his assessment of Alford)

Editorial Note: If you are not proficient in Greek, you will find this work considerably more useful than Alford's "Greek New Testament" on Acts (Click here), because in this volume he translates the Greek and Latin into English. While the "The Greek New Testament" is longer (e.g., English version of 1John = 66 pages compared to Greek version = 94 pages in part because the latter includes comments of more technical nature), the substance of the commentary is otherwise similar to that found in the "NT for English Readers".

William Arnot
Acts Commentary
"The Church in the House"
A Series of Lessons on the Acts of the Apostles
(1873) (569 pages)

Spurgeon writes "Intended to be read in families on Sabbath afternoons; but all who are acquainted with Dr. Arnot will know that even his simplest expositions are rich and full. He hath dust of gold." (Commenting and Commentaries) (Millennial)

Arnot's English uses words from 1800s which are sometimes difficult to understand, but the pearls abound like this snippet from Arnot's comments on Acts 1:8 - "The Spirit is like the air. The Lord breathed on His disciples, and said, "Receive ye the Holy Ghost." We could not live our present natural life without air. The sun in the heavens would not warm us if the atmosphere were not trapped round the globe. The air is near, and the sun is distant. It is the sun's heart that sustains life; but the sun's heart could not be communicated to plants and animals without the intervention of the atmosphere. The earth is as completely dependent on air for its supply of water as for its supply of heat. The air obtains a supply from the ocean, and pours it on the dry land. Thus disciples in every age obtain grace from the Lord through the ministry of the Spirit." Amen (Page 13)

Johann Bengel
The Critical English Testament

Commentary on Acts
Represents Combination of Bengel's Gnomon (Click here) and Comments
by more modern expositors (in brackets) to make this more usable for those who do not read Greek.(1877)

Charles Haddon Spurgeon -- "'A Critical New Testament, so compiled as to enable a reader, unacquainted with Greek, to ascertain the exact English force and meaning of the language of the New Testament, and to appreciate the latest results of modern criticism.' Such is the professed aim of this commentary, and the compilers have very fairly carried out their intentions. The whole of Bengel’s Gnomon is bodily transferred into the work, and as one hundred and twenty years have elapsed since the first issue of that book, it may be supposed that much has since been added to the wealth of Scripture exposition; the substance of this has been incorporated in brackets, so as to bring it down to the present advanced state of knowledge. We strongly advise the purchase of this book, as it is multum in parvo, and will well repay an attentive perusal. Tischendorf and Alford have contributed largely, with other German and English critics, to make this one of the most lucid and concise commentaries on the text and teachings of the New Testament" (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

    Arno C Gaebelein
    The Acts of the Apostles
    An Exposition
    (1912)
    See his shorter commentary on Acts
    Acts from Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible

    Rosscup notes that Gaebelein "was a popular evangelical Bible teacher of the first part of the century, much like H. A. Ironside in his diligent but broad, practical expositions of Bible books. Gaebelein was premillennial and dispensational, and editor for many years of Our Hope Magazine… This is one of the best older… works on Acts and is at times helpful in studying the transitional problems. It does not involve itself with exegetical details." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works)

    Horatio B Hackett
    A Commentary on the Original Text
    of the Acts of the Apostles

    (1882) (Over 400 page)
    (Revised by Alvah Hovey)

    C H Spurgeon writes that "Hackett occupies the first position among commentators upon the Acts." (Commenting and commentaries lectures) (Note: This 1882 revised, illustrated edition removes much of the original Greek text which makes this classic nineteenth work on Acts much more "user friendly." See Alvah Hovey's comments on what was revised in Hackett's original text).

    Introduction - 37 pages

    Rosscup notes that Expositor's Greek Testament is "One of the older, much-used commentaries, which offers considerable help on Greek words, grammar, background etc. and will prove rather contributive, consulted along with newer and longer studies." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works). This work has helpful comments but knowledge of the Greek is necessary for maximum benefit.

    Parker writes: This may be a proper point from which to look back upon the great event which glorifies the Acts of the Apostles, name, the outpouring of the HOLY SPIRIT, and to connect that event with the Ministry of Jesus Christ as well as with the development and sanctification of His Church. On considering how to conduct this part of my task I have decided to reprint the portion of my book entitled "The Paraclete", which specially deals with this sublime section of sacred history, and I feel the less hesitation about this course as the book is out of print and is frequently inquired for.

    Richard Rackham
    The Acts of the Apostles: An Exposition
    1904 (655pages)

    Rosscup writes "This is a very good though at times terse commentary from the standpoint of Greek and, historical background. Rackham was conservative but amillennial. Verse by verse he often offers good help, and he has addenda on topics such as breaking of bread, Sadducees and Pharisees, etc." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors)

    Charles Simeon
    Sermons on Acts
    Horae Homileticae

    John Piper says that Horae Homileticae "is the best place to go for researching Simeon's theology. You can find his views on almost every key text in the Bible. He did not want to be labeled a Calvinist or an Arminian. He wanted to be Biblical through and through and give every text its due proportion, whether it sounded Arminian as it stands or Calvinistic. But he was known as an evangelical Calvinist, and rightly so. As I have read portions of his sermons on texts concerning election and effectual calling and perseverance he is uninhibited in his affirmation of what we would call the doctrines of grace… What Simeon experienced in the word was remarkable. And it is so utterly different from the counsel that we receive today that it is worth looking at." (See his short discussion on Simeon's life = Brothers, We Must Not Mind a Little Suffering) (Bolding added)

    DISCLAIMER: Before you "go to the commentaries" go to the Scriptures and study them inductively (Click 3 part overview of how to do Inductive Bible Study) in dependence on your Teacher, the Holy Spirit, Who Jesus promised would guide us into all the truth (John 16:13). Remember that Scripture is always the best commentary on Scripture. Any commentary, even those by the most conservative and orthodox teacher/preachers cannot help but have at least some bias of the expositor based upon his training and experience. Therefore the inclusion of specific links does not indicate that we agree with every comment. We have made a sincere effort to select only the most conservative, "bibliocentric" commentaries. Should you discover some commentary or sermon you feel may not be orthodox, please email your concern. I have removed several links in response to concerns by discerning readers. I recommend that your priority be a steady intake of solid Biblical food so that with practice you will have your spiritual senses trained to discern good from evil (Heb 5:14-note).
