Acts Chapter 7: Stephen’s Last Witness and Martyrdom

Jan 27th, 2010 | By | Category: Acts, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

The stoning of Stephen took place outside the city walls on Golgotha, where Jesus had been crucified. The signification of being put to death outside the city was that the individual was accursed and apart from God and the holy city. The custom was to first push the person off Golgotha hill and then dispatch (kill) the fallen victim with stones.
