Acts of the Apostles
The Acts of our fathers the apostles, may their blessings be with us.
Acts 8 : 1 - 4
|1||Now Saul was consenting to his death. At that time a great persecution arose against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles.|
|2||And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him.|
|3||As for Saul, he made havoc of the church, entering every house, and dragging off men and women, committing them to prison.|
|4||Therefore those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the word.|
The word of the Lord shall grow, multiply, be mighty, and be confirmed, in the holy Church of God.
