Spirit and Courage

Fifth Sunday in Easter, Old Testament Lesson, Year A
Scripture: Acts 7:55-60

Note: for the Easter Season, readings from the Acts of the Apostles take the place of Old Testament Readings.

In this reading, Stephen asserts to the Jewish Council that Jesus is seated at the right hand of God. The Jews do not take well to this assertion because they believe in only one God. Stephen is stoned to death and becomes the first Christian martyr. Like Jesus, before he dies Stephen commends his Spirit to God and asks God to forgive those who murder him.
