Stephen, filled with grace and power, was working great wonders and signs among the people. Certain members of the so-called synagogue ... came forward and debated with Stephen, but they could not withstand the wisdom and the spirit with which he spoke.
...he said, “Behold, I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.” But they cried out in a loud voice, covered their ears, and rushed upon him together. They threw him out of the city, and began to stone him ... As they were stoning Stephen, he called out “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.”
