    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:8

    ¶ Pero Esteban, lleno de fe y de potencia, hacía prodigios y milagros grandes en el pueblo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 6:8

    Verse 8.
    Stephen, full of faith and power] Instead of pistewv, faith, caritov, grace, is the reading of ABD, several others, the Syriac of Erpen, the Coptic, Armenian, Vulgate, and some of the fathers. This reading Griesbach has admitted into the text. Some MSS. join both readings.

    Stephen was full of faith-gave unlimited credence to the promises of his Lord; he was full of grace-receiving the fulfillment of those promises, he enjoyed much of the unction of the Divine Spirit, and much of the favour of his God; and, in consequence, he was full of power, dunamewv, of the Divine energy by which he was enabled to work great wonders and miracles among the people.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. And Stephen, full of faith and power , etc.] The historian proceeds to give a narrative of Stephen particularly, the first of the seven deacons; of his faith and miracles, of his elocution and wisdom, of his courage and intrepidity, of his constancy, and of his suffering martyrdom. He is said to be full of faith, as before, ( Acts 6:5) the Alexandrian copy, and four of Bezas copies read, full of grace; and so do the Vulgate Latin and Syriac versions; the Ethiopic version reads, full of the grace of God: he had an uncommon share of it; it was exceeding abundant in him; he had a sufficiency of it for the service and sufferings he was called to: and he was full of power to preach the Gospel, and teach it the people, which he did with authority; to defend it, and oppose the adversaries of it; to bear reproach and indignities for it, and even death itself; and to do miraculous works for the confirmation of it, as follows: did great wonders and miracles among the people ; openly before them, such as speaking with divers tongues, healing diseases, casting out devils, etc.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 8-15 - When they could not answer
    Stephen's arguments as a disputant, the prosecuted him as a criminal, and brought false witnesses against him And it is next to a miracle of providence, that no greater number of religious persons have been murdered in the world, by the way of perjury and pretence of law, when so many thousands hate them, who make no conscience of false oaths. Wisdom and holiness make a man's face to shine, yet will not secure men from being treated badly. What shall we say of man, a rational being, yet attempting to uphold a religiou system by false witness and murder! And this has been done i numberless instances. But the blame rests not so much upon the understanding, as upon the heart of a fallen creature, which i deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. Yet the servant of the Lord, possessing a clear conscience, cheerful hope, and Divin consolations, may smile in the midst of danger and death __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    8. Did (epoiei). Imperfect: was working
    wonders during the progress of the events described in the previous verse.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:8 {
    Wrought} (epoiei). Imperfect active, repeatedly wrought. Evidently a man like Stephen would not confine his "ministry" to "serving tables." He was called in verse #5 "full of faith and the Holy Spirit." Here he is termed "full of grace (so the best MSS., not faith) and power." The four words give a picture of remarkable attractiveness. The grace of God gave him the power and so "he kept on doing great wonders and signs among the people." He was a sudden whirlwind of power in the very realm of Peter and John and the rest.
