    KJ version is only translation that uses the phrase Acts 4:30 By the Name of Jesus not through the Name of Jesus. This gives two different meanings to me. Am I missing something here or am I misunderstanding
  • BSP
    Verse 13~They were outspoken because they had the holy spirit which gave them the boldness to be fearlessly outspoken.
  • Lilian
    There are no other name given under the heaven its only Jesus Its only Jesus died on the cross and shed his blood for us so that you and me will be saved the stone has turn away and this is symbolises that Jesus resurrection and was raised from the dead thanks to your blood Lord Jesus my Jehova Shalom
  • BSP
    Verse 12- there is no salvation in anyone else but Jesus and their is no other true path to follow.
  • BSP
    Verse 3~Persecution arose soon after holy spirit was poured out. Satan uses his earthly agents to try and stop the progress of the true Christian congregation.

    I remember my baptism at 20 years old. It truly was an unforgettable experience. The p0wer of the holy ghost can truly have an immediate impact upon you. I like to compare it to hitting a home run. I pray that same power would continue with me forever, and the Love of Jesus and the power of the holy ghost. Peter, like me, started out good, he did deny Christ. This is the journey that is ahead.

    A disciple, everyone is guilty of Christ’s death for,He specifically came to atone for our sins. This idea of placing blame on a particular group is nonsense. It was the Father’s will that He come to shed His blood,for and take our sins upon Himself.....For God so loved the world.....see John 3:16.
  • 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.
  • Wayne
    Yes, they pray, also, to their venerated past leaders. Which is necromancy. Praying and asking for help from dead humans. As you say, Christ is our salvation and our life.
  • Maria Morales
    Verse 12 says there is no name under heaven given among men whereby we can be saved. Mary the mother of Christ neither any other can save us and yet people pray to them.
  • Wayne
    Titus 3:10, an heretic reject after the first and second admonition.
  • 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.
  • Thomas 16
    Bruce .. gospel of thomas there are 114 of the sayings authenticated in egypt 1945 purportedly directly recorded from thoughts and words of christ.. not to mention these sayings reflect christ gospel through out the kjv
  • Bruce
    Tom 77: where are these sayings found in The Bible?
  • Irene123
    Vs. 1-3; Reading this and thinking about it - it's fantastic to think of being jailed for preaching the Word. But, it will happen again; the banning of religion in schools, public bldgs. - not just gov't bldgs., is just the start of worse to come, BUT - our Lord Jesus is wa-a-ay ahead of the opposition. It's too bad the opposition doesn't know this.
  • Thomas 77
    77 Jesus said: I am the light that is above them all. I am the all the all came forth from me, and the all attained to me. Cleave a piece of wood I am there. Raise up a stone, and you will find me there.
  • Kevin
    I believe it to mean that one shouldn't worship false gods no matter what their names are. We can only be saved through Jesus, not Allah, Mohammed, etc.
  • Irene123
    Rhonda got a good start on the 'ONENESS' - Isa. $3:10; here's more - v. 11; 44:6, 8: 45:6, 14 18, 21, 22; 46: 5,9; 47:10; 48:11,12; Jn. 20:28 - "My LORD and my GOD". Thomas a Jew said this to Jesus - a Jew; and Jesus didn't rebuke him for calling Him - GOD. Being a Jew, Thomas wouldn't have had he not known Jesus was God in the flesh.
  • Love for Truth
    Amen Acts 4:12 through no other name can we obtain remission of our sins Acts 2:38 "be baptized everyone of U in the name if Jesus Christ for the remission of sins" Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved.
  • Rhonda Dotson
    Neither is there salvation in any other, saith the word. We know that there is only one savior; that is Jesus. It says in Isaiah 43 that there is none beside him..
  • Ben
    This reminds me of Matthew 1:21, how Christ saves us from our sins. Truly an inspirational word, knowing that we have the Lord Jesus Christ for our salvation. No one goes to the Father but by him!!! Thank you God for our Lord Jesus Christ who died for us!
