In their hearts turned back: Acts 7.39

“Our ancestors were unwilling to obey him. Instead, they pushed him aside, and in their hearts turned back to Egypt.”

Acts 7.39 CSB

In his defense before the Sanhedrin, Stephen showed how Israelite history proved their resistance to God’s plan in Christ.

Israel did not literally go back to Egypt. But they wanted to return. In their hearts they turned back. Do our hearts wish for the world?
