Commentary
Wesley's Notes on the Bible

8:22 Repent - if perhaps the thought of thy heart may be forgiven thee - Without all doubt if he had repented, he would have been forgiven. The doubt was, whether he would repent.

Period iii. The Critical Period: A. D. 140 to A. D. 200

Whether Baptism Can be Conferred in the Name of Christ?
