Message  Admin le Mer 11 Avr - 2:35 The Disciples of Christ Pt2

The chief priests and elders could not bear these words. They laid hold of the disciples and
put them in confinement. But thousands were converted, and believed in the resurrection and
ascension of Christ, by hearing only one discourse from the disciples. The chief priests and elders
were troubled. They had slain Jesus that the minds of the people might be turned to themselves; but
the matter was now worse than before. They were openly accused by the disciples of being the
murderers of the Son of God, and they could not determine to what extent these things might grow,
or how they themselves would be regarded by the people. They would gladly have put the disciples
to death; but dared not for fear the people would stone them. They called for the disciples, who
were brought before the council. The very men who eagerly cried for the blood of the Just One
were there.

They had heard Peter's cowardly denial of Jesus, with cursing and swearing, as he was
accused of being one of his disciples. They thought to intimidate Peter; but he was now converted.
An opportunity was here given Peter to exalt Jesus. He once denied him; but he could now remove
the stain of that hasty, cowardly denial, and honor the name he had denied. No cowardly fears
reigned in the breast of Peter then; but with holy boldness, and in the power of the Holy Spirit, he
fearlessly declared unto them 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. This is
the stone which was set at naught of you builders, which has become the head stone of the corner.
Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name under heaven given among men,
whereby we must be saved.
