Message  Admin le Mer 11 Avr - 2:33 The Disciples of Christ

With mighty power the disciples preached a crucified and risen Savior. They healed the
sick, even one who had always been lame was restored to perfect soundness, and entered with them
into the temple, walking and leaping and praising God in the sight of all the people. The news
spread, and the people began to press around the disciples. Many ran together, greatly astonished
and amazed at the cure that had been wrought.

When Jesus died the chief priests thought that there would be no more miracles wrought
among them, that the excitement would die, and that the people would again turn to the traditions of
men. But, lo! right in their midst, the disciples were working miracles, and the people were filled
with amazement, and gazed with wonder upon them. Jesus had been crucified, and they wondered
where the disciples had obtained this power.

When he was alive they thought that he imparted
power to his disciples; when Jesus died, they expected those miracles would end. Peter understood
their perplexity, and said to them, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so
earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk? The God
of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers hath glorified his Son Jesus, whom
ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go.
But ye denied the Holy One, and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you, and killed
the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead, whereof we are witnesses. Peter told them
that it was faith in Jesus that had caused this perfect soundness of a man who was before a cripple.
