Robertson Word Pictures - Acts 6:7 - 6:7

(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Increased (ēuxanen). Imperfect active, kept on growing all the more because the apostles were now relieved from the daily ministration of the food.

Multiplied (eplēthuneto). Imperfect passive. The two imperfects kept pace with each other.

Of the priests (tōn hierōn). Who were usually Sadducees. It was a sad day for Annas and Caiaphas and all the sect of the Sadducees (Act 5:17).

Were obedient to (hupēkouon). Imperfect active of hupakouō, repetition, one after another.

The faith (tēi pistei). Here meaning the gospel, the faith system as in Rom 1:5; Gal 1:23; Jud 1:3, etc. Here the word means more than individual trust in Christ.
