This is a key chapter in that it introduces the role of the deacon or “servant” within the early church. From this point on, we’ll see church leadership separated into the roles of elders and deacons or shepherds and servants.
One of the first deacons, Stephen, had a remarkable ministry, which brought him to the attention of the Sanhedrin, the ruling council in Jerusalem. He was eventually brought before them where he was falsely accused.
