17 But when the time of the promise drew nigh, which God had sworn to Abraham, the people grew and multiplied in Egypt,
18 Till another king arose, which knew not Joseph. Here it is 215 years latter they have increased to 6,000 fighting men. God knows how to redeem the time and Abraham had to wait to see God unfold Abrahams time to have a child so he was not childless, but fruitful to where the land multiplied in number as the sand of the sea shore. Suffering times have been growing time for the Church. When we increase in numbers, we increase in burdens. And we are seeing they knew not the history of Joseph. Today those that injure good people are very ungrateful and we see this by the homelessness and carelessness in our world. We have more understanding to day and yet more evil than any time in our world with people acting like fools, as they have no mercy for peoples problems. We are seeing barbarous inhuman cruelty, casting out babies and older people from living. Abortion is killing a seed. That can be a blessing. So Stephen is doing all he can to make everyone see the truth of what happen in the past, so they can become what God created us for Goodwill and peace to all today! Here the Church is multiplying and increasing in goodwill and peace to all.
19 The same dealt subtilly with our kindred, and evil entreated our fathers, so that they cast out their young children, to the end they might not live. Lord help us to see life as important and very precious in order that all can live and have the opportunity to live life to the fullest degree possible.
20 In which time Moses was born, and was exceeding fair, and nourished up in his father's house three months: Here they are accusing Stephen of Blasphemous words against Moses and here he is speaking favorably and honorably for Moses showing he was to be killed by Harold, but God protected him as he was in danger, He was saved to set His people the Jews free from bondage. So here Stephen shows Moses as fair and just as God was honoring him with life to the fullest. Moses is seen as being sanctified from birth as God made his life beautifully preserved when Pharaoh’s daughter who took him up and nursed him as her son. Who God wants to make special He uses special care to take care of. 
21 And when he was cast out, Pharaoh's daughter took him up, and nourished him for her own son. This can only happen because of Gods care for Moses.
22 And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds. Here Moses became a great scholar as he was taught by the greatest scholar of Egyptian men of learning, in philosophy, astronomy and hieroglyphics so he was being prepared to lead the Children of Israel threw the wilderness. He became a prime Minister of Egypt mighty in words and deeds even though he stammered, it did not prevent him from doing his job of addressing the needs of the people. 

23 And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel. Here he is at the prime of his life as a leader visiting his kindred in a public setting.
24 And seeing one of them suffer wrong, he defended him, and avenged him that was oppressed, and smote the Egyptian: Here he sees one of His brethren suffer wrongly and shows sorrow and kills the Egyptian knowing God was wanting law to be effective, so is justified doing what he did. 
25 For he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God by his hand would deliver them: but they understood not. Here it is easy to assume what is going to happen, but our assumptions always seem to get us into trouble. 
26 And the next day he shewed himself unto them as they strove, and would have set them at one again, saying, Sirs, ye are brethren; why do ye wrong one to another? The very next day he shows himself as one with the authority to question their behavior and attitude; sirs you are brethren, why do you wrong one another? Moses is doing his best to be a judge and a lawgiver according to the golden rule and did not kill but gave some excellent advice quoting the laws and statutes to them.
27 But he that did his neighbour wrong thrust him away, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge over us? Notice the one who was wrong did not want to hear this from Moses, but ready to judge Moses. Who made you a ruler and judge over us? This hurts for it is the truth. The truth seems to always hurt us, but it also reveals to us our problems we need to work at to keep us pure and holy.
28 Wilt thou kill me, as thou diddest the Egyptian yesterday? Yes, the truth is always going to reveal what is really going on and Moses could not deny what happen yesterday and needs to act now in a way that is so normal.
29 Then fled Moses at this saying, and was a stranger in the land of Madian, where he begat two sons. He flees from the truth and goes back to Madian and has two sons by Jethro’s daughter.
Here again proceeding to talk about Moses to these leaders who were accusing Stephen of Blaspheming Moses and he shows them they are the ones that are blaspheming and need to be ashamed instead of accusing Stephen, They were not taking heed to what they were doing in opposition to what was right, less you do what your fathers did. God has given you a prince and a Savior that you may understand when you open your eyes and see the Lord saying, come unto me and I will give you rest. That can deliver you out of the greatest slavery known to mankind. To Be Continued!
