Turning the Tables

Turning the Tables
Acts 7:51-53

Download MP3

As Stephen winds his way to the conclusion of his speech before the Sanhedrin, he turns the tables on them. They have charged him with irreverence for the law and rebellion against the temple and Stephen in turn charges them with gross crimes, murdering Christ and disobeying the law. The continuing force and application of Stephen’s address is bound up with his exposition of the internal dispositions of the heart which lead to gross sin. The charge of being -stiff-necked- and -uncircumcised in heart- and -always resisting the Holy Spirit- stands as a warning in every generation to the people of God to avoid gross sin by rooting these sinful dispositions from the heart.
