1 Acts 6:8-11 on Tue Sep 01, 2015 6:45 am

Acts 6:8-11 King James Version (KJV)
8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.
9 Then there arose certain of the synagogue, which is called the synagogue of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia and of Asia, disputing with Stephen.
10 And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake.
11 Then they suborned men, which said, We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses, and against God.

Acts 6:8-11 New King James Version (NKJV)
Stephen Accused of Blasphemy

8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people. 9 Then there arose some from what is called the Synagogue of the Freedmen (Cyrenians, Alexandrians, and those from Cilicia and Asia), disputing with Stephen. 10 And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the Spirit by which he spoke. 11 Then they secretly induced men to say, “We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses and God.”

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

8 Stephen was able to do this because of the Holy Spirit inside him. He started out as a deacon but now the Lord was using him in ways beyond that, the Lord may have us go into one position just to later have us somewhere else, it often times prepares us for what we later do for Him. Stephen being a deacon may have been used to make him ready for this.

9 These were a group of Gentile Jews, they often times had loyalty to the Emperor of Rome. They argued with Stephen, people will argue with us because they did with Christ, they will try trick us because they did with Christ and they may lie about us because they did with Christ.

10 Even though they were trying to cause trouble for Stephen, the Spirit moved over them, we can not resist the power of the Spirit.

11 They did not want to do this openly because of the numbers of the church. They also met is secret to do this with Jesus, there also may have been those of the church within this group as there were earlier with Jesus. Another corrupt trial that goes against the laws given thru Moses, the law they claim they follow they break to try to end Christians, it can not end because it is not of men so it does not die with us but it is of the Lord so it will never end because He lives.
