Acts 26:23 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

That Christ should suffer (εἰ παθητὸς ὁ Χριστὸς)

Rather, if or whether the Messiah is liable to suffering. He expresses himself in a problematic form, because it was the point of debate among the Jews whether a suffering Messiah was to be believed in. They believed in a triumphant Messiah, and the doctrine of his sufferings was an obstacle to their receiving him as Messiah. Note the article, "the Christ," and see on Matthew 1:1.
