Acts 4:13-17

13 When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. 14 But since they could see the man who had been healed standing there with them, there was nothing they could say. 15 So they ordered them to withdraw from the Sanhedrin and then conferred together.16 “What are we going to do with these men?” they asked. “Everyone living in Jerusalem knows they have performed a notable sign, and we cannot deny it.17 But to stop this thing from spreading any further among the people, we must warn them to speak no longer to anyone in this name.”

One response to “Acts 4:13-17

  1. They saw the visible work of God, right in their faces. There was nothing they could say.

    It is not my words, or my actions, that convince people. It is the work of God, through me, that speaks in the earth.

    Though the leaders were silenced, they did not embrace the power of God or look to see if they were missing the mark in their beliefs. They ordered the men silenced and sent from their presence.

    He was rejected in the earth. And He promises that we will be rejected and reviled for His name.
