From your own group
To follow them.”
καὶ ἐξ ὑμῶν αὐτῶν ἀναστήσονται ἄνδρες λαλοῦντες διεστραμμένα τοῦ ἀποσπᾶν τοὺς μαθητὰς ὀπίσω ἑαυτῶν.
The author of Acts indicated that Paul said that even some from their own group (καὶ ἐξ ὑμῶν αὐτῶν) would come up or arise (ἀναστήσονται ἄνδρες) speaking (λαλοῦντες) distorting things (διεστραμμένα) in order to entice or draw away (τοῦ ἀποσπᾶν) the disciples (τοὺς μαθητὰς) to follow them (ὀπίσω ἑαυτῶν). Not only outside wolves, but some among themselves would distort the truth to get personal disciples for themselves. Paul warned them that the threat was both internal and external to this fledgling Christian community. Have some of your friends tried to deceive you with false ideas?
