Interpretation of Stephen’s Defence
By David Smith June 8, 2009
The Holy Spirit ran through Stephen as he spoke so sure;
Joseph and Moses; examples so pure;
Types of Christ; rejection and pain
Powerful leaders to Israel was their gain.
Stephen spoke of the prophets; the Patriarchs’ grand
The Pharisees stoned him.
Examples of Christ they would not understand.
Stephen simplified the Old Testament with flair.
Related it to Christ; Power to compare.
The guilt and the shame,
The Cross, they did not want to hear.
They stoned Stephen so Christianity would disappear.
Saul was converted and he preached Christ.
The Old and New Testament fit together so nice.
Stephen’s speech before he was killed.
Faith is the answer; the Saints were thrilled.
His speech was but a moment and the pages live on
The Word of the Lord; Christ’s light has shone.
