Acts 7:16 and Genesis 33:18 contradiction
Quote:Acts 7:16 - And he[Joseph] was removed to Shechem and buried in the sepulchre which Abraham had bought for a sum of money from the sons of Hamor.
Are you sure 7:16 is referring to Joseph? Maybe so, but Stephen could be referring to Jacob.

7:15 - And Jacob went down into Egypt and died there; "he" and our fathers.
7:16 - And "he" was removed to Shechem, and laid in the sepulchre that Abraham bought with silver from the B'nai Chamur.

Take for example a verse in Genesis, which gives us some added detail as to the burial of Jacob:

50:13 - For his sons carried him [Jacob] into the land of Canaan, and buried him in the cave [sepulchre] of the field of Machpelah, which Abraham bought with the field, for a possession of a burying-place, of Ephron the Hittite, before Mamre. - ASV
