News of Christ Begins to Spread

The first seven chapters of the Book of Acts showed the church in Jerusalem, because the church had not spread beyond the city. However, the persecution that arose over Stephen dispersed the church and Luke showed where one preacher went, “Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them” (Acts 8:5).
Once persecution started the preaching of the Christ spread everywhere and it has not stopped. The Lord Jesus wanted His word spread all over the world and that has happened, starting with the persecution of Stephen in Acts 8.
