Yesterday we heard the listing of the stages of the nomadic journey of the people of Israel. God began giving instructions for the time when the people would enter the promised land.
We turn to Psalm 47, which is a jubilant song of praise.
We turn to Acts 6. Yesterday we heard Peter and the apostles give fearless testimony before the Jewish high council. They were beaten, but counted it an honor.
5 Everyone liked this idea, and they chose the following
[men//0]: Stephen (a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit), Philip, Procorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas of Antioch (an earlier convert to the Jewish faith).
10 None of them could stand against the wisdom [given by the Holy Spirit//and the Spirit], with which Stephen spoke.
