Bible: Acts 6:2-5

6:2 So the twelve 1  called 2  the whole group 3  of the disciples together and said, “It is not right for us to neglect the word of God to wait on tables. 4  6:3 But carefully select from among you, brothers, 5  seven 6  men who are well-attested, 7  full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may put in charge 8  of this necessary task. 9  6:4 But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.” 6:5 The 10  proposal pleased the entire group, so 11  they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, with 12  Philip, 13  Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas, a Gentile convert to Judaism 14  from Antioch. 15
