Acts 6:8-10

8 Stephen, full of faith and power, performed great wonders and signs among the people.  9 But some of those who were of the synagogue called "The Libertines," and of the Cyrenians, of the Alexandrians, and of those of Cilicia and Asia arose, disputing with Stephen.  10 They weren't able to withstand the wisdom and the Spirit by which he spoke. 

Acts 9:10-17

10 Now there was a certain disciple at Damascus named Ananias. The Lord said to him in a vision, “Ananias!”  He said, "Behold, it's me, Lord."

11 The Lord said to him, “Arise, and go to the street which is called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for one named Saul, a man of Tarsus. For behold, he is praying,  12 and in a vision he has seen a man named Ananias coming in, and laying his hands on him, that he might receive his sight.”

13 But Ananias answered, "Lord, I have heard from many about this man, how much evil he did to your saints at Jerusalem.  14 Here he has authority from the chief priests to bind all who call on your name."

15 But the Lord said to him, “Go your way, for he is my chosen vessel to bear my name before the nations and kings, and the children of Israel.  16 For I will show him how many things he must suffer for my name's sake.”

17 Ananias departed, and entered into the house. Laying his hands on him, he said, "Brother Saul, the Lord, who appeared to you on the road by which you came, has sent me, that you may receive your sight, and be filled with the Holy Spirit."
