    Definitions for Acts 5:11

    Church - Assembly of "called out" ones.

    Clarke's Commentary on Acts 5:11

    Great fear came upon all the Church - This judgment answered the end for which it was inflicted; a deeply religious fear occupied every mind, and hypocrisy and deception were banished from this holy assembly. On the word Church, see the observations at the end of Matthew 16 (note). It has been properly observed that we have in this place a native specimen of a New Testament Church:

    1. Called by the Gospel;

    2. grafted into Christ by baptism;

    3. animated by love;

    4. united by all kinds of fellowship;

    5. and disciplined by the exemplary punishment of hypocrites.
