Which Prophet Avoided Persecution?

Can you name a prophet who never experienced persecution? According to Stephen, they all experienced persecution, even if Scripture does not reveal it, Jewish history did reveal it.
Stephen said to those Jewish leaders who crucified Christ, “Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? And they killed those who foretold the coming of the Just One, of whom you now have become the betrayers and murderers, who have received the law by the direction of angels and have not kept it” (Acts 7:52, 53).
They received the Law by the direction of angels, yet, the Israelites persecuted every prophet who announced the coming of the Christ who was revealed in the Law, and when He arrived, they killed Him.
How do you treat God’s messengers? How do you treat Jesus?
