Acts 6:12-15 King James Version (KJV)
12 And they stirred up the people, and the elders, and the scribes, and came upon him, and caught him, and brought him to the council,
13 And set up false witnesses, which said, This man ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law:
14 For we have heard him say, that this Jesus of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and shall change the customs which Moses delivered us.
15 And all that sat in the council, looking stedfastly on him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel.

Acts 6:12-15Amplified Bible (AMP)

12 And they provoked and incited the people, as well as the elders and the scribes, and they came up to Stephen and seized him and brought him before the Council (Sanhedrin, Jewish High Court). 13 They presented false witnesses who said, “This man never stops speaking against this holy place and the Law [of Moses]; 14 for we have heard him say that this Jesus the Nazarene will tear down this place and will change the traditions and customs which Moses handed down to us.” 15 Then all those who were sitting in the Council, stared [intently] at him, and they saw that Stephen’s face was like the face of an angel.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

12 They were used by the Lord to stir up the people. They became angry because of the possible conviction they felt, when we witness to people we may have the same reaction. They may be mad because of how the message was received by the people.

13 If we had to stand trial for our faith would be found guilty or would most likely not even been sent to court because of how we live not being that different than the world. The broke one of the Ten Commandments because of their own will, God will never lead us to break was word. People may lie about us to bring us down. We just keep strong serving the Lord and pray for them.

14 Jesus fulfilled the customs of Moses; they were still living by the law at that time it was done to show their faith in Jesus. They kept their Jewish roots. Jesus did away with the need for the temple.

15 They saw Stephen as an angel that is because the Lord was with Him, we have the Lord with us and others should be able to see it.

To be persecuted is to follow after Christ.
