Stephen Lesson Plan

Stephen is a very popular bible hero because he always stood by God’s word, even though he faced persecution
and death. He is considered the very first Christian martyr and served as one of the first seven deacons. He
devoted himself to prayer and faith. Stephen showed good character and God gave him immense power and
gifts. Some people disliked Stephen because they were afraid of him and his faith. They did not understand the
power of God and believed that Stephen should be put to death. He was arrested and even in the face of
pressure, Stephen stood by the word of God and never wavered. He made a speech about God and the people
became angry. They dragged him from the city, and stoned him to death. Even as he was dying he asked for
God to receive his spirit.
