Gospel Truth for Today

Gospel demonstration makes way for gospel proclamation.

“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” – Peter to the religious rulers in Acts 3:12

The Lesson In A Sentence (or Two)

After healing a lame man, Peter boldly proclaims the good news of Jesus to all who were presented many of them believed.
1. What happened in this story?

A crippled man was begging for money at the temple gate. Peter and John did not give him money but healed him in Jesus’ name.

2. Why was the man begging for money?

He could not walk so he could not work. He needed to ask people for money to buy food.

3. How did Peter and John make him well?

Peter and John prayed for him in the name of Jesus Christ. It was not Peter or John’s power that healed the man but Jesus’ power.

4. The beggar was asking for silver and gold (money), but what did he get that was more valuable?

The beggar received two things he could not purchase with all the treasure in the world. First, his legs were healed, and second, the healing was the way God brought faith to his heart to believe.

5. Where did Peter get the courage to speak to the rulers and elders?

Peter was filled with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit emboldened him and helped him. See Acts 4:8.

6. What did Peter share with the religious rulers?

Peter shared the gospel. Review Acts 4:10–12.
