Mineral Wells Wednesday Bible Study Club

(Continued)

Miraculously, Peter and John were led out of prison and immediately returned to Solomon’s Porch where they continued their teaching. Peter and John exhibited the courage to go back to the porch and preach in the Temple. Their ultimate principle was their obedience to God – even though those actions might not be safe. They were obedient to God.  They had the clear knowledge that they were witnesses for Christ.  

The High Priest and the Sanhedrin were outraged by the continued teaching of the apostles [verses 33 through 42].  Chaos broke out and voices screamed, “stone them.”  

During their second appearance before the Sanhedrin, the apostles found a surprising ally. Gamaliel stood up for the apostles. Gamaliel is a Pharisee and a rabbi revered and respected for his scholarship, his wisdom and his ability to reason. He was a Doctor of Laws due to his knowledge of interpretation of Mosaic Laws and Rabbinic Laws.  Gamaliel was the one who could speak without asking permission from the High Priest. He used the Talmud method of argument: “If this is foolishness it will disappear, but if this is of God, you cannot stop it and you will be fighting God.”

The Sanhedrin ordered the apostles be flogged with 40 lashes. The apostles rejoiced because they were worthy of suffering in Jesus’ name. The number of believers grew and they never stopped proclaiming the Good News:  Jesus is the Messiah.

President Sarita Monroe conducted a short business meeting which was dismissed with the Closing Prayer.
