    [Stephen:] “This is that Moses who told the Israelites, ‘God will send you a prophet like me from your own people.’ He was in the assembly in the desert, with the angel who spoke to him on Mount Sinai, and with our fathers; and he received living words to pass on to us.”
    —Acts 7:37-38 (NIV)
    For my generation I must have the oracles of God in fresh terms.
