12And #Acts 2:43; 4:30; 6:8; 14:3; 15:12; (Rom. 15:19); 2 Cor. 12:12; Heb. 2:4through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people. #Acts 3:11; 4:32And they were all with one accord in Solomon’s Porch. 13Yet #John 9:22none of the rest dared join them, #Acts 2:47; 4:21but the people esteemed them highly. 14And believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women, 15so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, #Matt. 9:21; 14:36; Acts 19:12that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them. 16Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing #Mark 16:17, 18; (John 14:12)sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed. 17#Matt. 3:7; Acts 4:1, 2, 6Then the high priest rose up, and all those who were with him (which is the sect of the Sadducees), and they were filled with indignation, 18#Luke 21:12; Acts 4:3; 16:37and laid their hands on the apostles and put them in the common prison. 19But at night #Matt. 1:20, 24; 2:13, 19; 28:2; Luke 1:11; 2:9; Acts 12:7; 16:26an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said, 20“Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people #(John 6:63, 68; 17:3; 1 John 5:11)all the words of this life.” 21And when they heard that, they entered the temple early in the morning and taught. #Acts 4:5, 6But the high priest and those with him came and called the council together, with all the elders of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought.
