You Have Lied to God

Acts 5:1-11 In contrast to the generous and genuine behavior of the new church in Jerusalem, exemplified by Barnabas, we now see the example of Ananias and Sapphira, who attempted to deceive the Lord by their sale of land and donation of a portion of the price.

They Were of One Heart and Soul

Acts 4:32-37 Luke turns from the account of Peter and John before the Sanhedrin and the prayer meeting that followed to give us another encouraging glimpse of the unity, love and peace that the church was enjoying at this time.

They Began to Speak the Word Boldly

Acts 4:23-31 After defending themselves before the Jewish Council, Peter and John return to the rest of the Apostles to report what had taken place. We explore: * The report of Peter and John to the other Apostles * The resulting prayer of the church * God’s answer

There Is Salvation in No One Else

Acts 4:1-12 The preaching of Peter and John at the Temple, and the healing of the man born lame, caused a significant number to believe the Gospel and in response, the Apostles are arrested and put on trial by the rulers of the Sanhedrin.

God Raised Him for You First

Acts 3:11-26 Peter indicates that the healing of the lame man should not have amazed the Jews and that it was not done through the power or piety of Peter and John but through the Name of Jesus.

In the Name of Jesus, Walk!

Acts 3:1-11 Having been empowered by the Spirit at Pentecost, the disciples now set out to preach the Gospel in obedience to Christ’s command. With this purpose in mind, they went to the temple at the afternoon time of prayer. There they found a lame beggar.
