Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 7:42-50.


Acts 7:45

_ _ which ... our fathers that came after — rather, “having received it by succession” (Margin), that is, the custody of the tabernacle from their ancestors.

_ _ brought in with Jesus — or Joshua.

_ _ into the possession — rather, “at the taking possession of [the territory of] the Gentiles.”

_ _ unto the days of David — for till then Jerusalem continued in the hands of the Jebusites. But Stephen’s object in mentioning David is to hasten from the tabernacle which he set up, to the temple which his son built, in Jerusalem; and this only to show, from their own Scripture (Isaiah 66:1, Isaiah 66:2), that even that temple, magnificent though it was, was not the proper resting-place of Jehovah upon earth; as his audience and the nations had all along been prone to imagine. (What that resting-place was, even “the contrite heart, that trembleth at God’s word,” he leaves to be gathered from the prophet referred to).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 7:42-50.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 7:45

Which our fathers having received — From their ancestors; brought into the possession of the Gentiles — Into the land which the Gentiles possessed before. So that God's favour is not a necessary consequence of inhabiting this land. All along St. Stephen intimates two things: 1. That God always loved good men in every land: 2. That he never loved bad men even in this. Joshua 3:14.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 7:45

Which also our fathers that came after (s) brought in with Jesus into the (t) possession of the Gentiles, whom God drave out (u) before the face of our fathers, unto the days of David;

(s) Delivered from hand to hand.

(t) This is said using the figure of speech metonymy, and refers to the countries which the Gentiles possessed.

(u) God drove them out that they should yield up the possession of those countries to our fathers when they entered into the land.

Am I the only one who has applied 1Sam chapters 4-6 to Acts 7:45? That false god was not falling down before a piece of furniture no matter how Holy it was. That false god was falling down before who was sitting on top of the ark mercy seat. Jesus The Gentiles spoken of in verse 45 were the philistines and they did have possession of the Ark.
