(48) Ye are witnesses of these things.--Here again we have a link connecting the Gospel with the Acts, the key-note of which, especially in the earlier chapters, is that the disciples are to be "witnesses" of their Lord's work and teaching, and above all of His resurrection (Acts 1:8; Acts 1:22; Acts 2:32; Acts 3:15; Acts 5:32).

Behold, I send the promise of my Father . . .--As far as St. Luke's Gospel is concerned, the promise thus referred to would seem to be that of Luke 11:13. The discourses preserved by St. John show, however, that there had been the more recent and more definite promise of the Comforter (John 14:16; John 15:26), and so far St. Luke's report, vague as it is, presents an undesigned coincidence. . . .

Verse 48. - Ye are witnesses of these things. This personal witness of the first preachers of Christianity was the secret of their great power over men's hearts. What Dr. Westcott wrote of St. John was true of the rest of the eleven. "We have seen, and do testify. He (John) had no laboured process to go through; he saw. He had no constructive proof to develop; he bore witness. His source of knowledge was direct, and his mode of bringing conviction was to affirm."
