In yesterday’s blog I noted how the Jewish temple became an idol for Israel. I will continue that theme today as we look at Stephen’s denunciation of it. This becomes all the more suggestive when we realize that two references in Acts move along these lines, Ac 7:48 and 17:24. Both of these verses to be [...]Full Story »
