People's Commentary (NT)
Acts 15:6 The apostles and elders came together. A meeting of the apostles and the elders of Jerusalem was called. It was in the year AD 51, about twenty years after the ascension of Christ. One apostle had suffered martyrdom; eleven, including Matthias, remained, though some might have been in distant parts. James, the "brother of the Lord" (Galatians 1:19), though not one of the Twelve, was a chief man now in the Jerusalem church, and is often spoken of by historians as its pastor, or bishop. Though his sentiment decided the question this day, he has been regarded as a leader of the Judaizing Christians. See Galatians 2:12.
