Both Jesus and Stephen were accused of blasphemy<quoted text>
Stephen was stoned for blasphemy . The Jews charged Jesus with blasphemy but Jesus was crucified for sedition, the charge being claiming to be king of the Jews .
Betrayers of Stephen were paid to give false witness against him by the Libertines who were Hellenistic Jews. Judas was paid 30 pieces of silver for his betrayal
Stephen suffered rejection by the people as did Jesus
The accusers of Jesus spread lies about him as did the accusers of Stephen
Jesus was brought before the Sanhedrin, as was Stephen
One was stoned and one was crucified.
Roman punishment of crucifixion was used for sedition
Now why was Jesus crucified and not stoned like Stephen?
explain blasphemy. What was their blasphemy exactly?
explain Ms knowitall..
both accused of blasphemy but jesus was crucified because he was handed over to PIlatus
a. why was he handed over to Pilatus and wanst just stoned to death as accused of blasphemy?
b. why did they have to accuse Jesus of ...sedition against the romans if his wrong was actually blasphemy? like Stephen's blasphemy?
c. why didnt they accuse STephen of ..sedition too ? after all he too was found guilty of.. blasphemy!
and what was the blasphemy in jesus and stephe's case?
explain blasphemy EXACTLY!
STephen was stoned to death because he hadnt been handed over to any Roman for.. sedition. Not to mention the gnashed teeth and the hot temperament that gave no time for conspiracies and betraying to .. Romans.
and.. remind us please what STephen told the sanhendrin about them killing all their prophets AND EVEN JESUS which made their blood boil at hearing that insufferable truth. no time for sedition fake charges..
give me the verses please..
