Blaine Braden – The House You Build
In this week's message Pastor Blaine Braden from Eastmont Church in Bend, Oregon, wraps up a series on the Book of Acts.
This passage primarily consists of Stephen giving a defense of the Christian faith. Stephen sews together massive chunks of the Old Testament to build an argument that shows the Jewish people that Jesus is the Christ the scriptures promised.
He shows them through the history of their own people that the two things that they are accusing him of they have actually done themselves. They misunderstood the purpose of the temple and rejected the law of Moses.
