Acts 5

Good Morning Persistent Preachers.  Today Acts 5

These guys will not be quiet.  We saw the Disciples arrested in chapter 4.  Here they are again, arrested and jailed.  This time an angel of the Lord comes, opens the jail and instructs them to get back at it.  

They headed back to the Temple Courts and at Daybreak and began preaching.  When the Sanhedrin arrive they send for the prisoners.  Jail still locked, still guarded but guess what… empty!  Someone notices them doing as they were instructed and they are brought in once more.  ““We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name,” he said. “Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man’s blood.”” Acts‬ ‭5‬:‭28‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings! The God of our ancestors raised Jesus from the dead—whom you killed by hanging him on a cross.”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭5‬:‭29‬-‭30‬ ‭NIV‬‬

They go on to elaborate regarding their witness to the resurrection.  

When they heard this, they were furious and wanted to put them to death.”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭5‬:‭30‬, ‭33‬ ‭NIV‬‬

You gotta dig in a read to see what happens!  Love you all!
