Bible Commentary for Acts 5:27

Wesley's Notes for Acts 5:27


5:28 Did not we strictly command you, not to teach? - See the poor cunning of the enemies of the Gospel. They make laws and interdicts at their pleasure, which those who obey God cannot but break; and then take occasion thereby to censure and punish the innocent, as guilty. Ye would bring the blood of this man upon us - An artful and invidious word. The apostles did not desire to accuse any man. They simply declared the naked truth.

5:29 Then Peter - In the name of all the apostles, said - He does not now give them the titles of honour, which he did before, #Ac 4:8|; but enters directly upon the subject, and justifies what he had done. This is, as it were, a continuation of that discourse, but with an increase of severity.
