    Clarke's Commentary on Acts 24:15

    And have hope toward God, etc. - I not only do not hold any thing by which the general creed of this people might be altered, in reference to the present state; but, also, I hold nothing different from their belief in reference to a future state; for, if I maintain the doctrine of the resurrection of the dead, it is what themselves allow.

    Barnes' Notes on Acts 24:15

    And have hope toward God - Having a hope of the resurrection of the dead, which arises from the promises of God.

    Which they themselves ... - That is, the Pharisees. Perhaps he designated in this remark the Pharisees who were present. He held nothing in this great cardinal point which they did not also hold. For the reasons why he introduced this point so prominently, and the success of thus introducing it, see the notes on Acts 23:1-9.

    Both of the just and unjust - Of the righteous and the wicked; that is, of all the race. As they held this, they could not arraign him for holding it also.

    Wesley's Notes on Acts 24:15

    24:15 Both of the just and of the unjust - In a public court this was peculiarly proper to be observed.
