Peter and John Arrested (w. 1-4) 1- By Whom Arrested (vv. i, 2) The priests and Sadducees. The priests were Intolerant because these new teachers were encroaching upon their ministerial functions. The Sad ducees opposed them from doctrinal consideration. They denied the resur- ?0nJl0m dead 4nd the future life. Although they were the intellect ual liberalists of their day they were cruelly intolerant The most outstand ing bigots of our day are the professed Intellectuals whose watchword is "scholarship." 2- The Result (vv. 3, 4). Peter and .John were now nut In conf.nAmpnt hii the next day, it being too late for trial 'l uiac cay. Though the apo?tles were held by chains Christ continued to work, for the number of believers had now greatly Increased. Opposition helps God's cause. II. Peter and John 'on Trial (w. 5- 1. The Inquiry vv. 5-7). They were asked, "By what power, or in what name, have ye done this?" This in. quiry admitted the reality of the mir acle.. 2. Peter's Answer (w. 8-12)' With stinging sarcasm he showed them they were not being tried as evil do ers, but for doing good to the helpless uuu neeay man. He showed the ab surdity of dealing with men as crim-, inals who had merely relieved the suf fering and helpless man from distress -thus the rulers were placed in a most ridiculous and embarrassing po sition. Since they could not deny the miracle, Peter boldly declared, "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 Gad . raised from - the dead, even by him doth this man stand before you whole. This Is the stone which was set at naught by you build ers, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other form ; for there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby ye must be saved.". III. The Impression Upon the San hedrin (w. 13-22), 1. They marvelled Jv. 13). The fact that the apostles spoke so boldly, be ing unlearned men, caused them to marvel. They saw that the behavior and words of Peter were as unusual as the miracle. 2. They took knowledge that they had been with Jesus (v. 13). They saw mat tnough they had killed Jesus. nis ine and work were being repro duced in his disciples. Being with Christ (1) gives an experiential knowledge of him. The one who real ly knows Christ can and will testify of him and for him. (2) Gives free dom from fear. Peter, who .ohnrtiv T - - - before this quailed before a Jewish maid, was now bold before the most augnsi assembly of the Jews. (3H upens a man's lips. What the heart feels, the mouth must speak out. 3. The judges commanded them not to speak in Christ's name (v. 18). They could not deny the miracle nor gainsay the accusation which Peter brought against them, so they attempt ed to Intimidate them., 4. Peter and John's reply (w. 19, 20). They expressed their determina tion to disobey their instructors they openly defied the Sanhedrin. "Whether It.be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye; for we cannot speak the uimgs wnicn we nave seen and heard." By this declaration they re pudiated the authority of the rulers of Israel and set the church in a place of independence from the Jewish state. - 5. Their release (v. 21). Having further, threatened them, the Sanhed rin let them go, as it had no way to punish them, since the people were on their side, V: ;V IV. The Church at Prayer, (w. 23- 31). As soon as Peter and John were set free they hastened away to their dis ciples and rehearsed to them their ex perience. They took the matter to God in prayer, and in their- commun ion they turned to the Holy Scriptures xor comrort and strength. Forgive and Forgiven. Of bim that hopes to be forgiven It is indispensably required that he for give. It is. therefore, superfluous to urge any other motive.
