Temple Arrest, Sanhedrin Hearing and Release (4:1-22)

The uninterrupted progress of the church in Acts 1—3 is quite unlike the situation in our world, but with the story of the apostles' arrest, incarceration and trial Luke brings us "down to earth." The progress of the Jerusalem church did not occur without opposition. But advance it did, and therein lies the challenge to us: to accept the truth of its message and to be faithful in following its courageous example.
