Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentActs 26:8
- Incredible with you (apiston par' umin).
- This old word apiston (a privative and pistov) means either unfaithful (Luke 12:46), unbelieving (John 20:27), or unbelievable as here). Paul turns suddenly from Agrippa to the audience (par' umin, plural), most of whom were probably Gentiles and scouted the doctrine of the resurrection as at Athens (17:32).
- If God doth raise the dead (ei o teov nekrouv egeirei).
- Condition of the first class assuming that God does raise dead people. Only God can do it. This rhetorical question needs no answer, though the narrative resumed in verse 9 does it in a way.
