Acts 2: The Missionary
The great story of the building of the early church continues. False witnesses and testimony result in Stephen being stoned to death and becoming the first martyr of the church, with Saul standing there approving of his death. As persecution breaks out and the disciples are spread out Philip encounters an Ethiopian who is seeking God and baptizes him. But God is not finished with Saul who encounters the risen Christ on the road to Damascus and loses his eyesight. Saul, the hater of the church is converted and becomes a missionary for Jesus. Peter is shown by the Lord through a vision of animals that the gospel is for Gentiles as well as Jews.
