Robertson Word Pictures - Acts 11:16 - 11:16

(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

I remembered (emnēsthēn). First aorist passive indicative of the common verb mimnēskō, to remind. Peter recalls the very words of Jesus as reported in Act 1:5. Peter now understands this saying of Jesus as he had not done before. That is a common experience with us all as new experiences of grace open richer veins in God’s truth (Joh 12:16). Peter clearly sees that the water baptism is merely the symbol or picture of the spiritual baptism in the heart.
