Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 6:11-14

_ _ blasphemous words against Moses — doubtless referring to the impending disappearance of the whole Mosaic system.

_ _ and against God — This must refer to the supreme dignity and authority which he claimed for Christ, as the head of that new economy which was so speedily to supersede the old (compare Acts 7:56, Acts 7:59, Acts 7:60).
