So Bob is asking, after Stephen was stoned, where did the disciples flee to? All right, so that is a great question, my friend. And here is kind of an interesting answer. They did not flee is what my answer would be. An extra.

Speaker 1

Chapter eight, verse one. So basically in Acts chapter seven, we see the stoning of Stephen. And so the story just goes right into Acts chapter eight. It says Saul was consenting unto his death, being the death of Stephen. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem, and they were all scattered abroad through the regions of Judea and Samaria except the apostles.

Speaker 1

And so here we see basically that most of God’s people were spread out and they were scattered abroad except the apostles. So Jesus’disciples, those at least eleven who became apostles. And then of course, Mathias, who became the 12th, who took the place of Judas Iscariot. They weren’t scattered abroad, they stayed in Jerusalem. And that’s pretty clear if you read the rest of that chapter we just see afterwards.

Speaker 1

Basically, Philip goes out to Samaria and starts preaching and goes later on to a city, I think Gaza. Basically he goes to the city where the Ethiopian is and he converts to Ethiopian. But for the most part, all the apostles stayed in Jerusalem at that point in time. They weren’t scattered abroad until or they didn’t leave Jerusalem until later.

Speaker 1

And Book of Acts kind of goes into some of that. But yeah, they didn’t flee, as far as I know. They’re any thoughts on that one? Nope.
