Acts 6:8-10, 7:54-59:

“And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.

 

Then there arose certain of the synagogue, which is called the synagogue of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia and of Asia, disputing with Stephen.

And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spoke.

 

When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth.

 

But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, And said, ‘Behold, I seed the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.’

 

Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, and cast him out of the city, and stoned him:  and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man’s feet, whose name was Saul.

And while they stoned Stephen, he prayed saying, ‘Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.’
