You are illiterate in the knowledge of who Jesus is, and the power of God to teach and educate men in wisdom, knowledge , and understanding.<quoted text>
Which John? Many Johns wrote John in johns.
The one, you say was an eye-witness, was totally illiterate/unschooled! Acts confirms that.
The boldness of Peter and John - Την παρ ῥη σια ν, The freedom and fluency with which they spoke; for they spoke now from the immediate influence of the Holy Ghost, and their word was with power.
That they were unlearned and ignorant men - Αγρ αμμ ατο ι, Persons without literature, not brought up in nor given to literary pursuits - and ignorant, ιδι ωτα ι, persons in private life, brought up in its occupations alone. It does not mean ignorance in the common acceptation of the term; and our translation is very improper. In no sense of the word could any of the apostles be called ignorant men; for though their spiritual knowledge came all from heaven, yet in all other matters they seem to have been men of good, sound, strong, common sense.
They took knowledge of them - Επε γιν ωσκ ον may imply that they got information, that they had been disciples of Christ, and probably they might have seen them in our Lord's company; for there can be little doubt that they had often seen our Lord teaching the multitudes, and these disciples attending him.
That they had been with Jesus - Had they not had his teaching, the present company would soon have confounded them; but they spoke with so much power and authority that the whole sanhedrin was confounded. He who is taught in spiritual matters by Christ Jesus has a better gift than the tongue of the learned. He who is taught in the school of Christ will ever speak to the point, and intelligibly too; though his words may not have that polish with which they who prefer sound to sense are often carried away.
