Robertson Word Pictures - Acts 6:12 - 6:12

(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

They stirred up the people (sunekinēsan ton laon). They shook the people together like an earthquake. First aorist active indicative of sunkineō, to throw into commotion. Old verb, but here only in the N.T. The elders and the scribes (Pharisees) are reached, but no word about the Sadducees. This is the first record of the hostility of the masses against the disciples (Vincent).

Came upon him (epistantes). Second aorist (ingressive) active participle of ephistēmi. Rushed at him.

Seized (sunērpasan). Effective aorist active of sunarpazō as if they caught him after pursuit.
