Acts 4: Rescue won’t come from anybody else!

‘How did you do this?’ they asked them. ‘What power did you use? What name did you invoke?’

Peter was filled with the holy spirit. ‘Rulers of the people and elders,’ he said, ‘if the question we’re being asked today is about a good deed done for a sick man, and whose power it was that rescued him, let it be known to all of you, and to all the people of Israel, that this man stands before you fit and well because of the name of the Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, whom you crucified, but whom God raised from the dead. He is the stone which you builders rejected, but which has become the head cornerstone. Rescue won’t come from anybody else! There is no other name given under heaven and among humans by which we must be rescued.’

When they saw how boldly Peter and John were speaking, and realized that they were untrained, ordinary men, they were astonished, and they recognized them as people who had been with Jesus. And when they saw the man who had been healed standing with them, they had nothing to say in reply.
