6:7 And the word of God grew - The hinderances being removed.

6:9 There arose certain of the synagogue which is called - It was one and the same synagogue which consisted of these several nations.

People's Bible Notes for Acts 6:8


Ac 6:8 And Stephen . . . did great wonders and miracles. He is the first gospel preacher, not an apostle, whose work is named. He is also the first, not an apostle, under the new dispensation, to work miracles. Philip, also, of the seven, possessed miraculous power (Ac 8:6). Both received the imposition of apostolic hands. This seems to have been necessary to impart this power (Ac 8:15,17,19). See also Ro 1:11. As far as we know, it was limited to apostles, and to those whom whom the apostles laid hands. Also see PNT "Ac 5:12".
