Jesus Goes Through My Wreck

Acts 4:1-13

1 And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them, {captain: or, ruler}

2 Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead.

3 And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide.

4 Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.

5 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes,

6 And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem.

7 And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, By what power, or by what name, have ye done this?

8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,

9 If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole;

10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.

11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

During this time, the Sadducees almost completely controlled the High Priesthood and most of the Priestly duties in the temple.

The Sadducees were grieved. In other words, they were worried about what Peter and John were teaching at the temple.

They were angry that Jesus and the Resurrection were being preached; this was a Doctrine the Sadducees denied.

They now arrest Peter and John until the next day.

The problem was, many which heard the Word that was taught, believed the message that they received.

They believed in Christ and therefore accepted Him as their Messiah.

About 5000 thousand people believed what they had been taught that day.

The next day Annas, the High Priest and many of the high people, gathered at Jerusalem.

They now go and they get Peter and John and they set them in their midst.

They asked them by what power that they did this.

What had happened was that Peter and John had gone to the temple, at the gate called Beautiful.

There was a man that had been lying there, lame from his mother’s womb.

When this man saw Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked alms of them.

Acts 3:4-8

4 And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.

5 And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.

6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
