Acts 5:12 – 8:3
Karisa Karlovich
Acts 5:12-16
12 Now many signs and wonders were
done among the people through the
apostles. And they were all together in
Solomon’s Portico. 13 None of the rest
dared to join them, but the people held
them in high esteem. 14 Yet more than
ever believers were added to the Lord,
great numbers of both men and women,
15 so that they even carried out the sick
into the streets, and laid them on cots
and mats, in order that Peter’s shadow
might fall on some of them as he came
by. 16 A great number of people would
also gather from the towns around
Jerusalem, bringing the sick and those
tormented by unclean spirits, and they
were all cured.

Acts 5:17-20
17 Then the high priest took
action; he and all who were
with him (that is, the sect of
the Sadducees), being filled
with jealousy, 18 arrested
the apostles and put them in
the public prison. 19 But
during the night an angel of
the Lord opened the prison
doors, brought them out,
and said, 20 "Go, stand in
the temple and tell the
people the whole message
about this life."

57 But they covered their ears, and with a loud
shout all rushed together against him. 58 Then
they dragged him out of the city and began to
stone him; and the witnesses laid their coats
at the feet of a young man named Saul. 59
While they were stoning Stephen, he prayed,
“Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” 60 Then he
knelt down and cried out in a loud voice,
“Lord, do not hold this sin against them.”
When he had said this he died.

1 And Saul approved of their
killing him. That day a severe
persecution began against
the church in Jerusalem, and
all except the apostles were
scattered throughout the
countryside of Judea and
Samaria. 2 Devout men
buried Stephen and made a
loud lamentation over him.
3 But Saul was ravaging the
church by entering house
after house; dragging off
both men and women, he
committed them to prison.
