Acts 1:15

Brethren (adelpwn). Codex Bezae has "disciples." Multitude of persons (oclo onomatwn). Literally, multitude of names. This Hebraistic use of onoma=person occurs in the LXX ( Numbers 1:2 ; Numbers 18:20 ; Numbers 3:40 Numbers 3:43 ; Numbers 26:53 ) and in Revelation 3:4 ; Revelation 11:13 . Together (epi to auto). The word "gathered" is not in the Greek here, but it does occur in Matthew 22:34 and that is undoubtedly the idea in Luke 17:35 as in Acts 2:1 Acts 2:44 Acts 2:47 ; 1 Corinthians 11:20 ; 1 Corinthians 14:23 . So also here. They were in the same place (to auto). About a hundred and twenty (w ekaton eikosi). A crowd for "the upper room." No special significance in the number 120, just the number there.
