- Stephen was a Hebraic Jew.
- He was accused of not following the Law handed down
by Moses and of being disrepectful of the Temple.
- He preached the longest sermon in Acts; a summary
of the entire Old Testament.
- He is empowered like the Apostles, to preform signs
- His death propells the Church to fulfill it’s mission.
