Acts 6:12 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

They stirred up the people (συνεκίνησαν τὸν λαὸν)

The verb occurs only here in the New Testament. It implies to stir up as a mass, to move them together (σύν). This is the first record of the hostility of the people toward the disciples. See Acts 2:47.

Caught (συνήρπασαν)

Used by Luke only. Better as Rev., seized. See on Luke 8:29.
