Acts 17:11
¶Now these were more noble open-minded[a] than those in Thessalonica, in that they who received the word with all readiness of the mind, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.
———
a Or, more polite, well-mannered, or properly behaved? Gk. εὐγενέστερος, lit. more well-born. Here it appears to refer to behavior not breeding (classiness rather than class), either refering to their receptivity to examine the word, i.e., more open-minded; or maybe directly contrasting the hooliganism in 17:5 (the τῶν ἀγοραίων ἄνδρας τινὰς πονηρούς), i.e., more well-mannered. BDAG says: εὐγενής: 1) pert. to being of high status, well-born, high-born; 2) pert. to having the type of attitude ordinarily associated with well-bred persons, noble-minded, open-minded.
