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?

    v.13 - tells me that the Jewish muckety-mucks KNEW pretty much all about it; they knew the O.T. prophecies and that Jesus had fulfilled them. But, by now, they had their own agenda, which bro"t in more to the coffers, and gave them more power.
  • What's your thoughts?
    To me, Acts 4:12 is one of the most important verses in the bible. For those not familiar with the bible or Christianity may see/read John 3:16 and think 'okay, believe in God, but who is God/god?' There are so many "gods" being shoved in our childrens' faces, especially with the Muslim population on the rise, BUT the only way to Heaven is through Jesus Christ... Not allah

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

    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.
