Project 4:4--Day Three Hundred Twenty-Six

Day Three Hundred Twenty-Six, Acts 6-7

Today's reading contains the account of Stephen--the sermon he preached to the Sanhedrin, and the death he died because of it.

I just love how Stephen is able to start at the beginning, with Abraham, and explain from there forward about God's plan for the Messiah, who was Jesus of Nazareth.

Also noteworthy is Stephen's Christ-like comment while he is being stoned to death, as he prays for his persecutors, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them."
