New Defender's Study Bible Notes

8:24 Then answered Simon. Simon’s apparent repentance seems to have deferred Peter’s anathema on him. Although no further mention of Simon is given in the book of Acts, church history indicates that he later became a serious problem to the church. Known as Simon Magus, he is said to have been the one who introduced gnosticism into the church, and was a persistent opponent and rival of Peter.
