St. Stephen, sometimes called the Protomartyr (first martyr), was one of the original seven deacons appointed by the Apostles to oversee the charitable works of the new Church ... feed the poor, help widows and orphans, etc. His preaching aroused the enmity of members of various synagogues and he was put on trial, found guilty of blasphemy by the Jews and stoned to death. Saul of Tarsus (the future Paul the Apostle), a Pharisee, was present at his death.
