Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 7:57-58.


Acts 7:58

_ _ cast him out of the city — according to Leviticus 24:14; Numbers 15:35; 1 Kings 21:13; and see Hebrews 13:12.

_ _ and stoned — “proceeded to stone” him. The actual stoning is recorded in Acts 7:59.

_ _ and the witnesses — whose hands were to be first upon the criminal (Deuteronomy 17:7).

_ _ laid down their clothes — their loose outer garments, to have them taken charge of.

_ _ at a young man’s feet whose name was Saul — How thrilling is this our first introduction to one to whom Christianity — whether as developed in the New Testament or as established in the world — owes more perhaps than to all the other apostles together! Here he is, having perhaps already a seat in the Sanhedrim, some thirty years of age, in the thick of this tumultuous murder of a distinguished witness for Christ, not only “consenting unto his death” (Acts 8:1), but doing his own part of the dark deed.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 7:54-60.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 7:58

The witnesses laid down their clothes at the feet of a young man, whose name was Saul — O Saul, couldst thou have believed, if one had told thee, that thou thyself shouldst be stoned in the same cause? and shouldst triumph in committing thy soul likewise to that Jesus whom thou art now blaspheming? His dying prayer reached thee, as well as many others. And the martyr Stephen, and Saul the persecutor, (afterward his brother both in faith and martyrdom,) are now joined in everlasting friendship, and dwell together in the happy company of those who have made their robes white in the blood of the Lamb.
