Acts 6 & 7 - Stephen: The First Martyr

Stephen proclaimed Christ with power and boldness in Jerusalem and was arrested. His defense was a history of God working in Israel from Abraham to Jesus. The religious authorities were so enraged they dragged him out of the city and executed him by stoning. But Stephen was fall of peace, even praying for the forgiveness of his killers. How? How did he respond with such boldness, peace and love? And how can we face the injustices and suffering we will experience?
