Wesley's Notes for Acts 4:12


4:12 There is no other name whereby we must he saved - The apostle uses a beautiful gradation, from the temporal deliverance which had been wrought for the poor cripple, by the power of Christ, to that of a much nobler and more important kind, which is wrought by Christ for impotent and sinful souls. He therein follows the admirable custom of his great Lord and Master, who continually took occasion from earthly to speak of spiritual things.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 4:12


Ac 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other. No other Savior but Jesus; no salvation if his is rejected; no other name or power to save from destruction, unless he is accepted. Why, then, should men invoke the Virgin, or the saints?

    In verses 19 and 20, Peter and John were bold in their preaching. They set a good example for us to imitate.

    forgiven and then be born again into the family of God. This live with him throughout all eternity!!!

    The unbelief of the antichrist never will cease to amaze me that this generation even saw Jesus, even the head cornerstone, none other name under heaven by which men are saved.
  • Pat
    When God decides to protect you - you are protected by Him. When God decides not to protect you - you are still protected by Him - though you do not know it.

    Chapter 4 reminds me how the disciples had grown because Peter and the rest of the Apostles fled and forsook Jesus during his trials fearing this same council (Sanhedrin Court). Now they are speaking boldly before them without any fear all. In fact they count it a blessing to suffer in Jesus' name. Rarely do we see such commitment from people of God these days. We prefer not to suffer for Christ

    Amen! Regarding this verse. But, the image of the cross? We are not to worship the instrument of death that Jesus was nailed to. And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. Revelation 19:10 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. Revelation 22:9
