“Then they secretly induced men to say, ‘We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses and against God.’ … And fixing their gaze on him, all who were sitting in the Council saw his face like the face of an angel” (Acts 6:11, 15).
Stephen is accused of speaking blasphemous words about Moses. Nothing could be farther from the truth! Remarkably, 95% of all the verses Stephen cites in his sermon to the Sanhedrin come from the Torah (Acts 7:1-44)! Stephen is preaching Jesus from Torah, and all the while his face is shining like Moses too! Dear God, let us learn to read and preach the Torah like Stephen!
“Open my eyes, that I may behold Wonderful things from Your law” (Ps 119:18).
