A painting of the Stoning of Stephen

It’s often incredibly difficult to focus on simply worshiping God without interruption. I created this painting with the desire to portray a complete focus on the things of God, to the disregard of everything in the physical world.

The Stoning of Stephen

…But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. “Look,” he said, “I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.”
At this they covered their ears and, yelling at the top of their voices, they all rushed at him, dragged him out of the city and began to stone him…
While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” Then he fell on his knees and cried out, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” Acts 7:54-60 NIV
