And at that time, there was raised a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem. And they were all dispersed through the countries of Judea, and Samaria, except the apostles.
And devout men took order for Stephen’s funeral and made great mourning over him.
But Saul made havock of the church, entering in from house to house: and dragging away men and women, committed them to prison.
They therefore that were dispersed went about preaching the word of God.
And Philip, going down to the city of Samaria, preached Christ unto them.
And the people with one accord were attentive to those things which were said by Philip, hearing, and seeing the miracles which he did.
