Acts 5:27-42
RS 338-09


Our passage comes from Acts chapter 5 where things begin to look dim for the followers of Christ. Beginning around this time and spanning to around AD 300, the history of the early church is filled with persecution and suffering. Christians were systematically imprisoned, plundered, tortured, and killed. In this particular incident in Acts, we see Christians facing danger and the possibility of death with heroic courage.

Where did they get that heroic courage? We’re going to focus on the reply of the apostles in just four verses, 29-32. There are three questions to guide our time together: 1) What was that heroic courage? 2) Where did it come from? 3) How can we get it?
