17-22). Peter was greatly perplexed
over what he had seen, but not for
long; for messengers from Cornelius
made Inquiry at the gate for him. The
spirit informed Peter of the matter
and bade him go, nothing doubting.
3. The meeting of Cornelius and Pe
ter (vv. 23-33). (1) Peter took si
witnesses along (v. 23). He had the
good judgment to know that on a mat
ter of so great importance he must
have witnesses. This was proved at
the Jerusalem council in the consider
ation of the question of the reception
of the Gentiles into the church .(11:1

(v. 24). He called together his kins
men and near friends. (3) Cornelius
about to worship Peter (vv. 25, 26).
Peter repudiated this act and protest
ed that he was but a man. The true

are accepted of him.
2. The discourse (w. 36-43). In the
discourse he touches briefly upon the
mission of Jesus, showing that by
means of his baptism and anointing
with the Holy Spirit he was quali
