Daily Verse Reading – Acts 6:8-10; 7:54-59

The Arrest of Stephen

8 Now Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.
9 Then some men rose up from what is called the Synagogue of the Freedmen (Cyrenians, Alexandrians, and those from Cilicia and of Asia), disputing with Stephen. 10 But they were not able to withstand the wisdom and the Spirit by which he spoke.

The Stoning of Stephen

54 When they heard these things, they st-stephenwere cut to the heart, and they gnashed their teeth at him. 55 But being full of the Holy Spirit, he gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God, 56 and said, “Look! I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.”

57 Then they cried out with a loud voice, closed their ears, and rushed at him in unison. 58 And they threw him out of the city and stoned him. The witnesses laid down their garments at the feet of a young man named Saul.

59 They stoned Stephen as he was calling on God, praying, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.”
