Can't Stop This!

Acts 4:4-6 ~ Can’t Stop This!

This week we spent the first half of class discussing the so-called “400 Years of Silence” between the Old and New Testaments (a.k.a. “intertestamental time”). We briefly discussed the difference between the Catholic Bible and the Protestant Bible, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the origins of the Sadducees. Upon turning our attention to the passage, we discussed how Luke took special effort to show that the detainment of Peter and John did not hamper the spread of the gospel message.
