The Stoning of Stephen

Acts Chapter 7-8:

At this they covered their ears and, yelling at the top of their voices, they all rushed at him, dragged him out of the city and began to stone him. Meanwhile, the witnesses laid their clothes at the feet of a young man named Saul.

While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” Then he fell on his knees and cried out, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” When he had said this, he fell asleep.

And Saul was there, giving approval to his death.

On that day, a great persecution broke out against the church at Jerusalem… Godly men buried Stephen and mourned deeply for him. But Saul (who was also called Paul) began to destroy the church.

(a few months later..)
