Acts 6:8-15 – Stephen is chosen as one of the first Deacons, and while preaching the word is brought before the council

Up until this point, no one had been killed for their faith. Sure, the religious leaders were not happy that people spoke of Jesus and had captured some and then let them go when they showed how they had been with Him, but no one had died. Stephen could have kept quiet and low key. Instead, Stephen proclaimed the Gospel and paid for it with his life.
