Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.









(15) The number of names together were about an hundred and twenty.--The number probably included the Seventy of Luke 10:1, perhaps also Joseph of Arimathaea and Nicodemus, and some of the "five hundred" who had seen their risen Lord in Galilee or elsewhere (1Corinthians 15:6). The use of "names" may be merely as a synonym for "persons," but It suggests the idea of there having been a list from which St. Luke extracted those that seemed most conspicuous.

Verse 15. - These for those, A.V.; brethren for disciples, A.V. and T.R.; and there was a multitude of persons gathered together for the number of names together were, A.V.; a for an, A.V. Peter justifies his primacy by taking the lead in the first onward movement of the Church. Names is a common Hebraism for "persons" (see Revelation 3:4; Numbers 1:2). Gathered together; i.e. to one place and at one time (see the same phrase, Acts 2:1, 44). Wordsworth quotes Ignat., 'Ad Magnes' 7, and Clem. Romans 1:4, where the same phrase, ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ, indicative of Church unity occurs.
