HFW: Acts 6:1-7

We're working through a study this summer to celebrate Ephesians 3:10:

So that the manifold wisdom of God might be made known through the church to rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.

This series will run from June 22-August 30, with four readings per week.

This week (4), the last reading is Acts 6:1-7. After reading this text, answer the following questions, then you can watch the video for a 5:00 thought from the text. (I recommend you work in the text first before watching the video. However, be aware, the video is not intended to be the back of an algebra book--supplying answers to the questions--but rather, is just sharing some thoughts from the text.)

    1. What is the essence of the conflict?
    2. Why were the apostles hesitant to focus on feeding widows?
    3. What kind of men should the church choose for deacons?
    4. How is Stephen described?
    5. What was the result?
