Acts 12:16-18 The Passion Translation (TPT)

16 Meanwhile, Peter was still outside, knocking on the door. When they finally opened it, they were shocked to find Peter standing there.

17 He signaled for them to be quiet as he shared with them the miraculous way the Lord brought him out of prison. Before he left he said, “Make sure you let Jacob[a] and all of the other believers know what has happened.”

18 At the first sign of daylight, the prison guards were in a tremendous uproar because of Peter’s disappearance.[b] Herod ordered a thorough search for him, but no one could find him.


  1. Acts 12:17 This was Jacob (James), the brother of Jesus.
  2. Acts 12:18 This is the last mention of Peter in the book of Acts. The remaining chapters focus on the ministry of Paul.
