The Apostles' Healing Ministry and Its Consequences (5:12-42)

Through skillful scheduling, a college basketball coach gradually exposes his team to stronger opposition over a long season so that it is brought to peak performance by national tournament time. In a similar way, God in his providence stretches the church by placing various challenges before it in this second cycle of the pattern of advance (contrast 3:1—4:31).
