Robertson Word Pictures - Acts 7:30 - 7:30

(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Sentence begins with genitive absolute again.

In a flame of fire in a bush (en phlogi puros batou). Horeb in Exo 3:1; but Sinai and Horeb were “probably peaks of one mountain range” (Page), Horeb “the mountain of the dried-up ground,” Sinai “the mountain of the thorns.” Literally, “in the flame of fire of a bush” (two genitives, puros and batou dependent on phlogi, flame). Descriptive genitives as in Act 9:15; 2Th 1:8. Batos (bush) is the wild acacia (mimosa nilotica). In Exo 3:20 it is Jehovah who speaks. Hence “angel” here with Stephen is understood to be the Angel of the Presence, the Eternal Logos of the Father, the Angel of Jehovah.
