We've already examined what made Stephen a hero in life: today we begin summarizing what made Stephen a hero into death. His speech before the High Council contains powerful truth that can affect us even today, many centuries later. Stephen is a hero because he is a martyr, a witness. Like any good witness, he speaks truth about the defendant, God, rather than about himself. We are introduced to the main themes of Stephen's speech, and discuss the nature of apologetics. All in an attempt to set the stage for the next 4 weeks of examining the last words of a great hero.
Also, find out that CCBC doesn't care much for Law & Order. And special shout out to our friends Stephanie Gurnett and Julia Penner!
