Acts 10:42

And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he who was ordained of God to be the Judge of the living and dead.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
The living and of the dead. This may be understood of the elect, who live by grace, and the reprobate, who are spiritually dead; or perhaps more literally, of those who shall be found living upon earth at the second coming of Christ, and of all who have died from the commencement of the world to the end of time. (St. Augustine, Enchirid.)

John Chrysostom

AD 407
To him give all the Prophets witness, etc.

John Chrysostom

AD 407
This is great. Then he adduces the testimony from the Prophets: To Him give all the prophets witness, that through His name, whosoever believes in Him shall receive remission of sins.

The Apostolic Constitutions

AD 375
And we preached both to Jews and Gentiles, that He is the Christ of God, who is "determined by Him to be the Judge, of quick and dead."
