‘By what power or by what name have you done this?’ Acts 4:7-14

‘Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them:

“Rulers of the people and elders of Israel:

If we this day are judged for a good deed done to a helpless man, by what means he has been made well, let it be known to you all, and to the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole. This is the stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone. Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marvelled. And they realised that they had been with Jesus. And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.’
