In Acts chapter six we read about Stephen’s arrest, his sermon summarizing the Old Testament to the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem, and his martyr’s death. Two important events occurred after the death of Stephen: The Pharisee Saul, who later became Paul the apostle, was impacted and God used the persecution to scatter the Christians to take the Gospel to the regions beyond Jerusalem. The book of Acts records a “perpetual Pentecost” as a result of the early church’s obedience.
