Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Was divided - Into parties. Greek: there was a schism - Ἐσχίσθη Eschisthē.

And part held with the Jews - Held to the doctrines of the Jews, in opposition to the apostles. A revival of religion often produces excitement by the bad passions of opposers.

The Sovereignty of God in Reprobation

In the last chapter when treating of the Sovereignty of God the Father in Salvation, we examined seven passages which represent Him as making a choice from among the children of men, and predestinating certain ones to be conformed to the image of His Son.
