Behold the son of MAN!

Acts 7:54-56


54 When the members of the Sanhedrin heard this, they were furious and gnashed their teeth at him.55 But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. 56 Look,” he said, “I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.”




  • 我们看到了他勇气背后的奥秘。无论这世界会对他做出什么事,他却超越这一切,看到他的主正等待迎接他。
  • 我们看到了司提反跟随他的主的榜样。耶稣为那些处决祂的人祷告,求神宽恕他们,而司提反也照做了。
  • 司提反这可怕的煎熬以一种奇特的和平收场。司提反领受了平安,而这平安只会赐给那些肯为了真理而不顾性命的人。
