Gary H. Everett's Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures

Acts 7

 

 

Verse 54

Stephen is Stoned - In Acts 7:54 to Acts 8:1 a we have the account of Stephen being stoned by the Jewish leaders to become the first martyr of the early Church.

Acts 7:55-56Comments - Stephen's Vision of Jesus- It is interesting to note that Stephen recognized Jesus Christ as the Son of man when He saw Him standing at the right hand of the Father. Perhaps Jesus was telling Stephen that He too had suffered in His humanity, but was now glorified by the Father, and that Stephen, too, must suffer in order to be received up into eternal glory.

Acts 7:58Comments- In his book The Call Rick Joyner is told in a vision by Paul the apostle that the memory of the light that was on Stephen"s face during his stoning carried Paul through many trials. Paul felt that Stephen has somehow died for him, so that he could see the true light. 155]
