Conversions among the opposing authorities
Acts 6:7 (ASV 1901)
7And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem exceedingly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.
A Christian man that was sentenced to death expressed love for his persecutors and hope that he will see his wife in heaven. The officer on duty heard this conversation and later became a Christian.
