  1. I have two, St. Mary the Virgin (an Anglican term), and St. Paul the Apostle! Mary of course is drawn into the mystery of the Incarnation, as the Mother of the Incarnate Son; and St. Paul was “the” NT theologian (who wrote most of the NT) and Apostle to the Gentiles.

    “To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints….” 1Cor. 1:2

    Stephen or Paul…I go with Paul!

    Who did Jesus choose when the church was about to enter an age of extreme persecution and the battle was about to be waged on an additional front? Who was chosen to lead this new expansion to reach the gentiles? Surely Stephen would have been a top contender…he had such boldness before the Sanhedrin, and was definitely filled with the Holy Spirit of God. The sweetness of his prayer as he lay dying was remarkable in it’s forgiveness. Why didn’t the disciples rush in and save him…Even after death, surely they could have called him back to life to lead this new advance of the kingdom, wouldn’t you think?

    And just who was that unregenerate guy standing by and giving approval to Stephen’s death? A persecutor of “the way”! This Saul of Tarsus, would be the cause of many a nightmare disturbing the rest of Jesus’ beloved! Who? What? Why? How could he be the one? And yet, Saul is the one chosen, who not only advances the front, but pens the words that lead many into the arms of Jesus!

    Once the door for the Gentiles was opened, the line of those who would pass through would reach thousands of years into the future!
