Bible: Acts 6:8-15

Stephen is Arrested

6:8 Now Stephen, full of grace and power, was performing great wonders and miraculous signs 1  among the people. 6:9 But some men from the Synagogue 2  of the Freedmen (as it was called), 3  both Cyrenians and Alexandrians, as well as some from Cilicia and the province of Asia, 4  stood up and argued with Stephen. 6:10 Yet 5  they were not able to resist 6  the wisdom and the Spirit with which he spoke. 6:11 Then they secretly instigated 7  some men to say, “We have heard this man 8  speaking blasphemous words against Moses and God.” 6:12 They incited the people, the 9  elders, and the experts in the law; 10  then they approached Stephen, 11  seized him, and brought him before the council. 12  6:13 They brought forward false witnesses who said, “This man does not stop saying things against this holy place 13  and the law. 14  6:14 For we have heard him saying that Jesus the Nazarene will destroy this place and change the customs 15  that Moses handed down to us.” 6:15 All 16  who were sitting in the council 17  looked intently at Stephen 18  and saw his face was like the face of an angel. 19
