Now in those days, as the number of disciples increased, there rose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily distribution. So the twelve called the multitude of the disciples to them and said, It is not seemly that we should leave the word of God and attend at tables. read more.
