The IVP New Testament Commentary Series – Consequences of the Healing Ministry (5:17-42)
Consequences of the Healing Ministry (5:17-42)

A popular American TV news anchor of the 1960s and 1970s regularly signed off his broadcasts with "That's the way it is." Since his reports dealt only in human factors, they would have resonated with the Sadducean nobility, who believed all history was the result of human decisions (Josephus Jewish Antiquities 13.173). But the Sadducees were in for a surprise when they arrested the apostles. Certain things happened which forced them—and force us—to ask who was really in charge of the course of events.
