Overview: It Was A Hard Pill For Them To Swallow / Acts 7:1-60
In our message today, we step into the situation we leave off in Acts 6, where some evil and despicable men had managed to get the lowly table serving servant of God Stephen, arrested. They lie, and get others also to lie or bear false testimony against him by saying that he spoke evil against God, and His law and the holy place of the temple in Jerusalem.
In today's message, we get Stephens response to their accusation as they wait for him to defend himself. Ironically Stephen doesn't defend himself, but rather, gives them a very long history lesson, to try to get them to slowly and smoothly, swallow a very large and hard pill of truth.
What is this pill of truth he tries to get them to swallow? Why does he do it slowly, and smoothly?
I answer these questions and more in this message title, "It Was A Hard Pill For Them To Swallow".
