    I love that no matter what man said or tried to do Peter stood fast to the word of God

    To Joseph on v.30 - as you see it; Heb. 11:1. Also, it says 'tree', so how do you know it wasn't a literal Olive or Fig tree, still growing in the ground? He was 'nailed' to something. but as I see it - that/s what saves us and is important: Acts 2:38 is our salvation: PETER said so (and so did Jesus in Matt. 28:19). The 'tree' is just something one uses as a distraction to those searching.

    Verse 29 shows that's God's laws must be obeyed above man's laws. When a law a man makes conflicts with God's law then we must follow the words found here in this verse.
  • Lilian
    Disobedience to God's words is the first sin that we have committed. That is why Jesus was given for us so that we may all have life in abundance. From his blood our sins are forgiven and we are pardoned he paid the price on the cross and the cross was the tree of life. A cross where he shed his blood for us. This is the cross where Jesus destroy the works of the defeated devil . Thank u Lord
