This is ironic that my blogs are Monday and Friday because last time we observed the beginning of Stephen’s preaching.  This blog we see the end of a long message and that sermon cost him his life here on earth.  Absent from the body present with the Lord.  This is the longest message in the New Testament.  He gave the whole history of the notion ending up with Christ and their guilt of the crucifixion and His resurrection and ascension.  Then he gets a vision of Christ who is known as the Son of Man standing at the right hand. Why this vision? Christ left His seat to honor His precious servant in his martyrdom.
How interesting that there was another young man, Saul, who Christ already had in mind to carry on where Stephen left off.  God is never short sighted.  He knew exactly what He was going to do.
