aAnd he was discoursing in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuading Jews and Greeks.

WK Translation Notes

+
a
discoursing: The same word means either 'discoursing' in general, or in particular 'reasoning', or even 'disputing', as in Mark 9:34; Acts 17:2; 24:12; Jude 9. Here as in chapter 20:7,9; Heb. 12:5, the more general force seems preferable; in others 'reasoning' may be right as between the extremes. Context alone can decide. (Exp. of Acts, p.257-8)
