1. Verse 17 shows that the high priest and his associates "were filled with jealousy" at the apostles. HOW DO YOU SEE JEALOUSY AT WORK IN OUR WORLD TODAY AGAINST GOD'S WORK?
2. Verse records the apostles' answer to the temple authorities, "We must obey God rather than men." HOW CAN WE KNOW IF WHAT SOMEONE IN AUTHORITY EXPECTS IS OF GOD OR MEN? Compare this verse with Romans 13:1-7, 1 Timothy 2:1-4, and 1 Peter 3:17. ·
3. In verses 30-32 Peter and the apostles give a succinct, brief message on the truth of the Gospel. Comparing with 1 Peter 3:13-15, HOW WOULD YOU GIVE A SHORT EXPLANATION OF THE GOSPEL TO SOMEONE WHO ASKED?
