Robertson Word Pictures - Acts 16:17 - 16:17

(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

The Most High God (tou theou tou hupsistou). Pagan inscriptions use this language for the Supreme Being. It looks like supernatural testimony like that borne by the demoniacs to Jesus as “son of the Most High God” (Luk 8:28. Cf; also Mar 1:24; Mar 3:11; Mat 8:29; Luk 4:41, etc.). She may have heard Paul preach about Jesus as the way of salvation.

The way of salvation (hodon sōtērias). A way of salvation, strictly speaking (no article). There were many “ways of salvation” offered to men then as now.
