The death of Stephen

Aller en bas The death of Stephen

Message  Admin le Jeu 12 Avr - 2:05 The death of Stephen
Disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem. The word of God increased, and many of the
priests were obedient unto the faith. Stephen, full of faith, was doing great wonders and miracles
among the people. Many were angry; for the priests were turning from their traditions, and from
the sacrifices and offerings, and were accepting Jesus as the great sacrifice. Stephen, with power
from on high, reproved the priests and elders, and exalted Jesus before them.

They could not withstand the wisdom and power by which he spoke, and as they found that they could prevail
nothing against him, they hired men to falsely swear that they had heard him speak blasphemous
words against Moses and against God. They stirred up the people, and took Stephen, and, through
false witnesses, accused him of speaking against the temple and the law. They testified that they
had heard him say that this Jesus of Nazareth would destroy the customs which Moses gave them.
