Acts 4:23-35 – The Gospel Community in a Hostile City

April 22, 2018

Peter and John return from a night in prison and threats at the hands of the Religious Authorities in Jerusalem and together with the disciples they pray for boldness to continue to speak the word of God and for God’s power to heal and perform signs in Jesus name. At the threat of persecution, they are motivated by trust in the sovereignty of God and the power of the gospel to love even those who are hostile.
