Saints Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, Nicholas of Antioch ~ The Other Deacons!
The 6th Chapter of Acts shares the story about the apostles needing a bit of help and having the first seven deacons selected.Of these seven deacons, Stephen (who was stoned to death) and Philip (who converted the Ethiopian) are pretty well-known.What about the other five? Who are they?
Nicholas of Antioch
These men were the other five.Unfortunately, little information on these men was passed on … but we do know that they were faith-filled, filled with the Holy Spirit, that the apostles laid their hands upon them, and that large numbers of people in Jerusalem - even priests - began to embrace the New Faith after these guys began their work.
