Bible Commentary for Acts 7:52

Wesley's Notes for Acts 7:52


7:51 Ye stiff necked - Not bowing the neck to God's yoke; and uncircumcised in heart - So they showed themselves, ver. 54; #Act 7:54| and ears - As they showed, ver. 57. #Act 7:57| So far were they from receiving the word of God into their hearts, that they would not hear it even with their ears. Ye - And your fathers, always - As often as ever ye are called, resist the Holy Ghost - Testifying by the prophets of Jesus, and the whole truth. This is the sum of what he had shown at large.

7:53 Who have received the law by the administration of angels - God, when he gave the law on Mount Sinai, was attended with thousands of his angels, #Gal 3:19|; #Psa 68:17|.
