Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 7:35-41.


Acts 7:37

_ _ This is that Moses which said ... A prophet ... him shall ye hear — This is quoted to remind his Moses-worshipping audience of the grand testimony of their faithful lawgiver, that he himself was not the last and proper object of the Church’s faith, but only a humble precursor and small model of Him to whom their absolute submission was due.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 7:30-41.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 7:37

The Lord will raise you up a prophet — St. Stephen here shows that there is no opposition between Moses and Christ. Deuteronomy 18:15

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 7:37

(4) This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.

(4) He acknowledges Moses as the Lawgiver, but in such a way that he proves by his own witness that the Law had respect to a more perfect thing, that is to say, to the prophetical office which accompanied Christ, the head of all Prophets.
