Stephen compares the idolatry of the Israelites in the wilderness with the way the Jews at the time of Christ were treating the temple and the ceremonial law in his effort to show that it is they, and not he, who are blaspheming God and dishonoring Moses.

Once again, we are encouraged to seek after the ‘martyr’s heart’ that Stephen had, being willing to die for the truth of the Gospel if called upon to do so.
