Acts 10:24 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
His kinsmen and near friends - Συγγενεις, His, relatives, and αναγκαιους φιλους , his necessary friends; but the Syriac makes αναγκαιους an epithet as well as συγγενεις, and thus the passage may be read, his kinsmen, his domestics, and his friends. It appears that he had collected the whole circle of his intimate acquaintance, that they also might profit by a revelation which he expected to come immediately from heaven; and these amounted to many persons; see Acts 10:27.

Caesarea. This city, once an obscure fortress called Strato's Tower, was built and superbly decorated by Herod the Great and called Caesarea, in honour of Augustus Caesar, to whom he dedicated it in the
28th year of his reign. It was situated on the shore of the Mediterranean, between Joppa and Dora, with a haven, rendered by Herod the most convenient on the coast: according to Ibn Idris and Abulfeda,

from Acco or Ptolemais; and, according to Josephus,
600 stadia, or
75 miles from Jerusalem, though the real distance is probably not more than
