A Bronsted acid is a substance that gives off protons, so the proton donor. A Lewis acid is a substance that can accept a lone pair of electrons. Just because something is a Lewis Acid, does not mean it has to be a Bronsted Acid.

Similarily all Bronsted bases are Lewis bases but not all Lewis bases are Bronsted bases.
