Jesus affirms the acceptance of sinners:
Background: Stephen’s legacy is that the Good News leaves Jerusalem (1-4)
Who does Jesus want to save and include in the Church He is building?
(1) Jesus wants the despised (5-8 and 14-17)
(2) Jesus wants the deceived (9-13 and 18-25)
(3) Jesus wants the distant (26-40)
Do we want these people on Jesus’ team, and will we help them join?
