Where do Christian Scriptures contradict what is written in the Jewish Scriptures? Let’s find out in this interesting article by Gerald Sigal.
Stephen’s speech, made while he was supposedly “full of the Holy Spirit” (Acts 7:55), shows a number of distinct differences from that found in Christian versions of the Bible which follow the Jewish Masoretic text (Acts 7:14-16).
