    Clarke's Commentary on Acts 28:22

    For as concerning this sect - See the note on Acts 24:14. A saying of Justin Martyr casts some light on this saying of the Jews: he asserts that the Jews not only cursed them in their synagogues, but they sent out chosen men from Jerusalem, to acquaint the world, and particularly the Jews everywhere, that the Christians were an atheistical and wicked sect, which should be detested and abhorred by all mankind. Justin Martyr, Dial. p. 234.

    Barnes' Notes on Acts 28:22

    What thou thinkest - What your belief is; or what are the doctrines of Christians respecting the Messiah.

    This sect - The sect of Christians.

    Spoken against - Particularly by Jews. This was the case then, and, to a great extent, is the case still. It has been the common lot of the followers of Christ to be spoken "against." Compare Acts 24:5.

    Wesley's Notes on Acts 28:22

    28:22 This sect we know is every where spoken against - This is no proof at all of a bad cause, but a very probable mark of a good one.
