Acts 8 - Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible

Resources » Commentaries » Acts » Chapter 8 » exegesis

Saul persecutes the church.

Though persecution must not drive us from our work, yet it may send us to work elsewhere. Wherever the established believer is driven, he carries the knowledge of the gospel, and makes known the preciousness of Christ in every place. Where a simple desire of doing good influences the heart, it will be found impossible to shut a man out from all opportunities of usefulness. (Ac 8:5-13)
