Stephen appears before the High Council after being accused of blasphemy. He gives a speech which ends with an accusation: the High Court does not uphold the Law of Moses.

The Council members react furiously. Stephen is strengthened by a vision of Christ in heaven.

Part of a series on the martyrdom of St. Stephen that Juan de Juanes made for the church of San Esteban (=Stephen) in Valencia.
