Peter and John Before the Sanhedrin














He is Risen


Acts 4:1-12


1. The priests and the captain of the temple guard and the Sadducees came up to Peter and John while they were speaking to the people.

2. They were greatly disturbed because the apostles were teaching the people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection of the dead.

3. They seized Peter and John, and because it was evening, they put them in jail until the next day.

4. But many who heard the message believed, and the number of men grew to about five thousand.

5. The next day the rulers, elders and teachers of the law met in Jerusalem.

6. Annas the high priest was there, and so were Caiaphas, John, Alexander and the other men of the high priest's family.

7. They had Peter and John brought before them and began to question them: "By what power or what name did you do this?"

8. Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: "Rulers and elders of the people!

9. If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a cripple and are asked how he was healed,

10. then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed.

11. He is
"the stone you builders rejected,
which has become the capstone." [a] [b]

12. "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."

Acts 16:25-34

25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises to God: and the prisoners heard them
26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediatly all the doors were loosed.
27 And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open,he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had fled.
28 But Paul cried out with a loud voice, saying "Do thy self no harm: for we are all here.
29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembeling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,
30 And brought them out, and said " Sirs,what must I do to be saved?"
31 And they said, Believe on the lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and your house."
32 And they spake unto him the word of the lord, and to all that were in his house.
33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes: and was baptised he and all his, straightaway.
34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in god with all his house.

We are to this spot in our bible study on Acts and I came across your post while researching the chapter. It's a good passage and it reminded me that we should be bold in sharing our faith. The victory is guarenteed in our favor so we have nothing to fear!
