Reading along with us in Acts? Here’s today’s reading:

Acts 4 (ESV)

And as they were speaking to the people, the priests and the captain of the temple and the Sadducees came upon them, greatly annoyed because they were teaching the people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from the dead.And they arrested them and put them in custody until the next day, for it was already evening. But many of those who had heard the word believed, and the number of the men came to about five thousand.

On the next day their rulers and elders and scribes gathered together in Jerusalem, with Annas the high priest and Caiaphas and John and Alexander, and all who were of the high-priestly family. And when they had set them in the midst, they inquired, “By what power or by what name did you do this?”...Continue Reading

  2. And now Peter and John are called to defend themselves before the Sanhedrin. It is interesting to consider that under similar or even lesser circumstances Peter denied Christ. And yet now he boldly proclaims the gospel and the truth that the leaders of Israel were wrong to reject Jesus. It is neat that they can see something different about these men in the same way they were struck by the authority with which Jesus taught.

    I too was struck by the two verses you wrote Melanie. we must obey God and not men when men call us to disobey God’s direction.

    And isn’t it great how God affirms His agreement with their prayer for protection as they continue to proclaim the message of Christ. God manifests Himself in power to affirm them in their call.

    And it is neat how much they cared for each other and trusted God to share everything with each other. How might we model this as a church?
