Gilbert House Fellowship #105: Acts 3-8

Stoning StephenTHE EARLY church grows by leaps and bounds in the days after Pentecost. But things weren’t perfect because (surprise!) the apostles were human, too.

We discuss the dispute between Greek and Jewish believers over the care of widows and the deception of Ananias and Sapphira. We also cover the sort-of conversion of Simon Magus, the conversion of the Ethiopian eunuch, and the stoning of Stephen — our introduction to Saul of Tarsus, who would arguably become the greatest of all the apostles.

Here is the link Derek promised to the article at Lion and Lamb Ministries on the Ethiopian tradition about the Ark of the Covenant.

  1. OK, I’m not technologically savvy! How do I play these studies? I don’t have a smartphone, just a computer.

  2. Uusally you hear JESUS sitting on the right hand of GOD, but with Stephen he’s seen standing on the right hand of GOD is there something here that I’m missing. This has bothered me for years because I always thought there was more to this and I just didn’t get it.

  3. Wow, your right. For some reason, I taught there was something there I couldn’t understand.
    Thank you for opening my eyes, sometimes you are so focused on what you are reading that you miss the obvious. Thanks again 😊
