Acts 5:36-37

Context
5:36 For some time ago 1  Theudas rose up, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men joined him. He 2  was killed, and all who followed him were dispersed and nothing came of it. 3  5:37 After him Judas the Galilean arose in the days of the census, 4  and incited people to follow him in revolt. 5  He too was killed, and all who followed him were scattered.

1 tn Grk “For before these days.”

2 tn Grk “who.” The relative pronoun was replaced by the pronoun “he,” and a new sentence was begun in the translation at this point.

3 tn Grk “and they came to nothing.” Gamaliel’s argument is that these two insurrectionists were taken care of by natural events.

4 tn Or “registration.”

5 tn The verb ἀφίστημι (afisthmi) as a transitive means “cause to revolt” as used in Josephus, Ant. 8.7.5 (8.198), 20.5.2 (20.102); see BDAG 157 s.v. 1.
