Stephen Is Arrested

Stephen was richly blessed by God. God gave him the power to do great miracles and signs among the people. But some Jews were against him. They belonged to a synagogue of Free Men[a] (as it was called). (This synagogue was also for Jews from Cyrene and from Alexandria.) Jews from Cilicia and Asia were also with them. They all came and argued with Stephen.

10 But the Spirit was helping him to speak with wisdom. His words were so strong that they could not argue with him.
