Guest Preaching: By What Name?
April 22 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
I’ll be preaching at Sandgate again. We’ll be talking about Acts 4:5-12, when the religious aristocracy continue to be annoyed with Peter for preaching the resurrected Christ. This time they are talking about a man Peter had healed who had been crippled since birth. Peter laid ahold of him and made him well. And this is how wrong the ruling council gets it: they can’t deny that a healing happened, because there is too much evidence. So instead they grant the premise of the healing and instead ask “by what power or name did you do this.”
Their answer is self-evident; they’ve been preaching Jesus for weeks. So now the religious leaders decide, what, since they’ve already convicted Jesus of blasphemy, they can take the Apostles words that they do it in Jesus’ name, ignore the basic fact that the man has been healed, and still persecute them?
There’s a whole lot wrong with this. Let’s talk about it Sunday!
