FALSE accustions against Paul and Stephen
What were the “False” accusation against Stephen and Paul? These accusations got one killed and one stoned and arrested. Now remember….these were FALSE accusations. Here are the scripture verses:
11 Then they secretly induced men to say, “We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses and God.” 12 And they stirred up the people, the elders, and the scribes; and they came upon him, seized him, and brought him to the council. 13 They also set up false witnesses who said, “This man does not cease to speak blasphemous[c] words against this holy place and the law; 14 for we have heard him say that this Jesus of Nazareth will destroy this place and change the customs which Moses delivered to us.”
But they have been told about you—that you teach all the Jews living among the gentiles to forsake the Law of Moses, and that you tell them not to circumcise their children or observe the customs.
These were people who were “falsely” accusing them. The accusation was that they were teaching against the laws of Moses. Now if that is false then the opposite it true. They were not teaching people to disobey or dishonor the laws of Moses.
Please consider this when you are studying your New Testament. Neither Stephen nor Paul would ever teach anyone anything that was contrary to Yah’s (God) perfect laws of Moses.
