    The Church can no longer say Gold and Silver have I none, but it also can't say in the name of Jesus Christ rise up and walk. The Church of today has NO power!

    Verse 17~Even though Peter's brothers were in the wrong, he still made sure to treat them with respect and speak to them respectfully.

    Hello, well I believe that Peter was known as a common man throughout the region. infact he was average. thus they could not fathom how "the average man" could have such authority over principalities of that nature.
    Jesus on the other hand had gathered great fame and was perceived by many to be a prophet. An other reason would be that Jesus is Christ and His own people would not accept Him.
  • Joshua
    Act 3 is deep as it revealed the miracle and power in the name of Jesus that arouse our faith in that name.
  • Arley3
    Rebeka if people want to sin they can believe a lie with miracles happening right in front of their eyes. "2 Thes. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." If God didn't make it this way we wouldn't see evil as a choice. God wants voluntary praise.
