4:24 The sense is, Lord, thou hast all power. And thy word is fulfilled. Men do rage against thee: but it is in vain.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 4:24


Ac 4:24 Lifted up their voice to God with one accord. All engaged in prayer. It was a time of trial. They were forbidden, under awful threats, to preach Christ (Ac 4:18,21). Hence they go to God.

Discussion for Acts 4

  • Irene123
    V. 4 - ".....the number which heard and believed was about 5,000." Acts 2:39 or 40 - ".....about 3,000 were added to the church." These nos. sound fantastic and of course these nos. don't happen today. BUT - they do!! The church is all around the WORLD now, and these same nos. are going on today, albeit over a wider area.

    Annas was high priest.after you all comment try questions it will give you questions and answers about the chapters.

    Marat: You are correct in one way for Caiaphas was high the year that Jesus was arrested John 18:13. But when Peter and John was arrested Annas was high priest in that year, Acts 4:6 check it out. Good study.
  • Marat
    Your answer Annah to the question: Who was the high priest when Peter and John were arrested at the temple? is incorrect. The correct answer is Caiaphas. See John 18:13, Annah was father-in-law of Caiaphas who was a high priest for that year.

    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.
