The Stoning of Stephen

The number of disciples during this time is growing. The Hellenistic jews were not happy because their widows were being ignored. Jesus’ twelve disciples got together and said it was the work of God to care for others including widows but they have to keep spreading the word of God and bringing and teaching others about him. So 7 of the disciples stayed and helped feed the hungry and care for them while the other 5 went out and kept doing what they were doing before. The disciples that stayed behind were Stephen, Philip, Procorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas.
Stephen was a man full of faith and knowledge. He performed many wonders and signs among the people. However, Jews of Cyrene and Alexandria and provinces of Cilicia and Asia started to argue with Stephen. They started saying he was speaking blasphemy against Moses and God.
One time Stephen said to the people,” You stiff- necked people! You are just like your ancestors! You always resist the Holy Spirit! Was there ever a prophet your ancestors did not persecute? They even killed those who predicted the coming of the Righteous One. And now you have betrayed and murdered him- you who have received the law that was given through angels but have not obeyed it.”
After he said this he made them so mad that they dragged him out of the city and stoned him.

Bible Projects Holy Spirit

To me the Holy Spirit is someone who guides me tells me what to do. The Holy Spirit is really special. The Holy Spirit is a person and is divine. The Holy Spirit is God. Like where it says God is Holy trinity; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is in my heart. He is also in everyone else’s heart who accepts him. He leads us and tells us what to do. The Holy Spirit is something that we really need. We wouldn’t be moved by anything and God couldn’t talk to us with out the Holy Spirit.



The Holy Spirit seals us and makes us promised to God and makes God promised to us. The Holy Spirit seals the deal. He is a gift from God. Some people think what the purpose of life is. The Bible says the purpose of life is to spread the love of God to others through the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is how God speaks to us; only he doesn’t talk to us through words. He talks through our heart.




Jesus’ Crucifixion

My Thoughts on Jesus’ Last few Words on the Cross


When Jesus said,”Father, forgive them for they do not know what they do.” I think that was very true what he said. He basically told God that he had to forgive the people because they didn’t know that they were doing wrong things against him. By that I think he meant like the priests and people that didn’t like Jesus because they didn’t know that they were betraying Jesus. They thought he was a wacko person that just wanted attention.  That is one of my favorite of Jesus  last words.
