LESSON 9 TEXT

Lesson Text 4:1-12 (Acts)

Read the Lesson Text aloud. Read the entire section until you can pronounce each word correctly, reading each paragraph without pausing. Practice until you can read the entire Lesson Text with good English pronunciation.

Peter and John were still speaking to the people when some priests, the officer in charge of the Temple guards, and some religious rulers arrived. They were annoyed because the two apostles were teaching the people that Jesus had risen from death, which proved that the dead will rise to life. So they arrested them and put them in jail until the next day, since it was already late. But many who heard the message believed; and the number grew to about five thousand.

The next day the Jewish leaders, the elders, and the teachers of the law gathered in Jerusalem. They met with the High Priest and the others who belonged to the High Priest’s family. They made the apostles stand before them and asked them, “How did you do this? What power do you have or whose name did you use?” Peter, full of the Holy Spirit, answered them, “Leaders of the people and elders: if we are being questioned today about the good deed done to the lame man and how he was healed, then you should all know, and all the people of Israel should know, that this man stands here before you completely well through the power of the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth who you crucified and whom God raised from death. Salvation is to be found through him alone; in all the world there is no one else whom God has given who can save us.”
