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?

Discussion for Acts 4

  • Ray321
    Matthew 16:21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. All of the disciples were sleeping or somewhere else, but Mary and Mary was there with Jesus. Matthew 27:61 Was Peter waiting for Jesus, did he forget the resurrection.
  • A disciple
    Ray; don't you know that Peter was the first chosen Apostle, and of the Twelve? None of them understood before His resurrection, except Mary of Bethany and maybe a few others. Peter was filled with the Holy Spirit and preaches to the Jews WHAT THEY NEED TO HEAR! that they were guilty of betraying the Lord Jesus Christ, and let Him be put to death without a cause. They were guilty, and still are!
  • Ray321
    Acts 4:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. Here we go again, Peter is letting the Jews know how they crucified Jesus. Remember Peter did not believe that Jesus was going to be raised from dead, he wasn't there to see.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    The Holy Spirit has emboldened the Apostles. They are now on fire for Christ and endued with healing power. They shared and lived communally. What a glorious beginning in was with the Apostles! Today, we should strive to have the Holy Spirit with us permanently so we can be so empowered and overcome sin and the devil.
  • A disciple
    Is there any doubt that the beast who ascends out of the pit is going about in a furious rage against the LORD and against His Anointed, to make war on the Saints? or that the devil has come down in great anger because he knows he only has a short time, to pursue and persecute us and to devour us? Why then do so many Christians still think that they can reason by truth with the unreasonable?
  • Wayne
    123, and if a person had respect and adoration for the Word of God, one wouldn't spin the scriptures. One gospel and only one gospel.
