Robertson Word Pictures - Acts 7:52 - 7:52

(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Which of the prophets (tina tōn prophētōn). Jesus (Luk 11:47; Mat 23:29-37) had charged them with this very thing. Cf. 2Ch 36:16.

Which shewed before (prokataggeilantas). The very prophets who foretold the coming of the Messiah their fathers killed.

The coming (tēs eleuseōs). Not in ancient Greek or lxx and only here in the N.T. (in a few late writers).

Betrayers (prodotai). Just like Judas Iscariot. He hurled this old biting word at them. In the N.T. only here and Luk 6:16; 2Ti 3:4. It cut like a knife. It is blunter than Peter in Act 3:13.

Murderers (phoneis). The climax with this sharp word used of Barabbas (Act 3:14).
