How To Stand in The Face of Lies

Feb 13, 2022    Matthew Henry
The time of war in Jerusalem toward the young Church is now upon it. Not because of evil. Not because of sin. But because the name of Jesus as the Christ is the cornerstone of the Church’s message. It begins and ends with the person and work of Jesus. And if Jesus is supreme then there are consequences to how a Jew is to believe, live and worship. And this attacks the power structures of the day. In this story, Luke records the build up to Stephan’s execution and shows Stephan to be a man fully walking in the light.
