Acts 4:27 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
For of a truth - Truly; in reality.
Thy holy child Jesus - The word "child" is commonly applied to infants, or to sons and daughters in very early life. The word which is used here παῖς pais is different from what is commonly applied to the Lord Jesus υἱός huios. The latter expresses sonship without respect to age. The word which is here used also sometimes expresses sonship with out any regard to age, and the word "son" would have been a more happy translation. Thus, the same word is translated in Acts 3:13, Acts 3:26. In Acts 20:12, it is translated "youngman."

With the Gentiles - The Romans, to whom he was delivered to be crucified.
The people of Israel - The Jews, who were excited to this by the rulers, Matthew 27:20.

and will hand Him over to the Gentiles to mock and scourge and crucify Him, and on the third day He will be raised up."
and they bound Him, and led Him away and delivered Him to Pilate the governor.
