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

  • Wayne
    Those that deny Jesus is the only begotten son of God are blasphemers and heretics.
  • Wayne
    Now 50 years of Bible study should have cleared up Father, Son, Holy Ghost. But being as it hasn't, 2 scriptures to help. John 8:28, words of Christ, as my father hath taught me. John 14:28, in Christ's "very own words", for my Father is greater than I. This is my Beloved Son in whom I am well pleased. If Jesus, whom some say, is not the Son of God, but God,they make God out to b a liar.
  • Irene123
    a disciple - It's plain to see now that - you have no use for God's word, nor Pastors - Heb. 10 25. If you had respect for God's word you wouldn't leave out parts of it - Matt. 28:19; Acts 2:38; 4:12.
  • A disciple
    Irene; WHY don't you ever let go of this notion, that the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit are all one person? Whoever you're listening to, is taking you down a wrong path, into heresy! There's no part of the Scriptures that is left for us to guess at, or put our own meaning to. You might want to consider getting away from ALL so-called teachers, and read the Word for yourself for awhile. :)
  • Irene123
    Kevin - V. 12 also means we cannot be saved using the titles of 'father, son, and holy ghost' in Matt. 28:19. Matt. 28:19 clearly says " ... in the NAME ... "; also Lk. 24:47.
