Wesley's Notes for Acts 4:20


4:18 They charged them not to speak - Privately; nor teach - Publicly.

4:19 Whether it be just to obey you rather than God, judge ye - Was it not by the same spirit, that Socrates, when they were condemning him to death, for teaching the people, said, O ye Athenians, I embrace and love you; but I will obey God rather than you. And if you would spare my life on condition I should cease to teach my fellow citizens, I would die a thousand times rather than accept the proposal.

4:21 They all glorified God - So much wiser were the people than those who were over them.
