Wesley's Notes for Acts 3:6


3:6 Then said Peter, Silver and gold have I none - How unlike his supposed successor! Can the bishop of Rome either say or do the same?


People's Bible Notes for Acts 3:6


Ac 3:6 Silver and gold have I none. Though the early church had poured out its gifts abundantly, Peter had not enriched himself, and was a poor man (Ac 2:45), presenting a great contrast to the popes who claim to be his successors. It is related that Thomas Aquinas came to Rome and visited Innocent IV. He looked somewhat amazedly upon the mass of plate and treasure which he saw there. "So", said the pope, "you see, Thomas, we cannot say as did St. Peter of old, 'Silver and gold have I none.'" "No", said Aquinas, "neither can you command, as did he, the lame man to arise and walk". Peter had that which the popes have not. In the name of Jesus Christ. Christ worked his miracles in no one's name. The power was his own, but with the apostles all things were done in Christ's name, and the power ascribed to him.

    2 Pete 15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you 16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction

    Ray;"But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; and killed the Prince of life, WHOM GOD RAISED FROM THE DEAD; whereof we are witnesses." Why do you think you have to find fault with the Apostle Peter? Peter was greatly loved and appointed by Jesus!
  • Ray321
    Acts 3:14 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you. What's interesting is how Peter told the Jews how badly they murder Jesus , but never said anything about the resurrection of the Body of Jesus in detail. Also never said anything about Jesus being the Body of the Church. We will find later who Jesus tells about the Body of the Church .
