Acts 5:37

Of the enrolment (thv apographv).
Described by Josephus (Ant. XV. 1, 1). The same word used by Luke of the first enrolment started by Augustus B.C. 8 to 6 (Luke 2:2). See the discussion on Luke 2:2. This is the second enrolment in the fourteen year cycle carried on for centuries as shown by numerous dated papyri. Ramsay (The Bearing of Recent Discovery on the Trustworthiness of the N.T.) has produced proof from inscriptions that Quirinius was twice in Syria as Luke reports (Robertson, Luke the Historian in the Light of Research).

Drew away (apesthse).
Causative sense of the first aorist active indicative of apisthmi, made people (laon, no need of "some of the") to revolt (apostatize) with him.

He also (kakeinov, crasis for kai ekeinov).
That one, also.

Were scattered abroad (dieskorpisthsan).
First aorist (effective) passive indicative of diaskorpizw, old verb to disperse. Used of sheep (Mark 14:27), of property (Luke 15:13). Aorist here after imperfect (epeitonto) as in verse Acts 5:36.
