Life is pretty grand for the new Christian converts. Then everything changes in an instant. But instead of bowing in the face of persecution, we see the beginnings of the gospel proclaimed to the nations -- and two thousand years later -- us! 

In today's episode of the Journey through Acts podcast, we'll consider why Luke spends so much time recounting Stephen's sermon, and why Stephen even bothers schooling the religious leaders in their own history. Then, we'll watch as tragedy turns to mission, one most of us as non-Jews can trace as the beginnings of our spiritual heritage.
