Sermon text: Acts 4:1-22
After Peter and John healed a crippled man outside the temple in Jerusalem, they were arrested. But the arrest wasn’t because of their merciful action. No, the authorities took them in to custody because of Peter’s sermon immediately following the miracle. Peter dared to preach about Jesus and His resurrection. The authorities couldn’t have Jesus’ followers preaching about the resurrection. But Peter and John would not be silenced. They had a message that needed to get out.
