1 About this time, when the number of disciples was increasing, the Hellenists made a complaint against the Hebrews: in the daily distribution their own widows were being overlooked.
Acts 9:39  Acts 2:41  Acts 2:47  Acts 4:35  Acts 6:7  Acts 9:29  Acts 9:41 

2 So the Twelve called a full meeting of the disciples and addressed them, 'It would not be right for us to neglect the word of God so as to give out food;
Deut 1:9-14  Exod 18:17-26  2Tim 2:4  Neh 6:3  Num 11:11-13  Acts 4:19  Acts 21:22 

3 you, brothers, must select from among yourselves seven men of good reputation, filled with the Spirit and with wisdom, to whom we can hand over this duty.
1Tim 3:7-15  Deut 1:13  Jas 3:17-18  3John 1:12  1Cor 12:8  1Cor 16:3  1John 3:14-16 

4 We ourselves will continue to devote ourselves to prayer and to the service of the word.'
Acts 1:14  1Tim 4:13-16  Phil 1:9-11  1Cor 9:16  Acts 2:42  Acts 13:2-3  Acts 20:19-31 

5 The whole assembly approved of this proposal and elected Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, together with Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolaus of Antioch, a convert to Judaism.
Acts 11:24  Acts 6:3  Acts 6:8  Acts 21:8  Acts 6:10  Acts 7:1-2  Acts 8:5-40 

6 They presented these to the apostles, and after prayer they laid their hands on them.
2Tim 1:6  1Tim 4:14  Acts 1:24  Acts 8:17  Acts 9:17  Acts 13:3  1Tim 5:22 

7 The word of the Lord continued to spread: the number of disciples in Jerusalem was greatly increased, and a large group of priests made their submission to the faith.
Acts 12:24  Acts 19:20  Col 1:6  Rom 1:5  2Chr 29:34  2Chr 30:24  2Tim 2:9 

8 Stephen was filled with grace and power and began to work miracles and great signs among the people.
1Tim 3:13  Acts 8:6  Acts 2:17-18  Acts 4:29-30  Acts 6:3  Acts 6:5  Acts 6:10 

9 Then certain people came forward to debate with Stephen, some from Cyrene and Alexandria who were members of the synagogue called the Synagogue of Freedmen, and others from Cilicia and Asia.
Acts 15:23  Acts 15:41  Acts 22:3  Acts 23:34  Acts 2:9-10  Acts 16:6  Acts 18:24 

10 They found they could not stand up against him because of his wisdom, and the Spirit that prompted what he said.
Luke 21:15  1Cor 2:4  John 7:46  Luke 1:17  Luke 12:11-12  Matt 10:19-20  Acts 5:39 

11 So they procured some men to say, 'We heard him using blasphemous language against Moses and against God.'
Matt 26:59-60  1Kgs 21:10-13  1Tim 1:13  Acts 6:13  Acts 7:37-39  Acts 15:21  Acts 18:6 

12 Having turned the people against him as well as the elders and scribes, they took Stephen by surprise, and arrested him and brought him before the Sanhedrin.
Prov 15:18  Acts 4:1-3  Acts 5:18  Acts 5:27  Acts 13:50  Acts 14:2  Acts 16:19-21 

13 There they put up false witnesses to say, 'This man is always making speeches against this Holy Place and the Law.
Acts 6:11  Acts 21:28  Acts 7:58  Acts 25:8  Matt 24:15  Ps 27:12  Ps 35:11 

14 We have heard him say that Jesus, this Nazarene, is going to destroy this Place and alter the traditions that Moses handed down to us.'
Acts 15:1  Acts 21:21  Dan 9:26  Acts 25:8  Acts 26:3  Acts 28:17  Gal 3:19 

15 The members of the Sanhedrin all looked intently at Stephen, and his face appeared to them like the face of an angel.
