Notes:

Acts 3:1 – They went out looking for an opportunity to speak on behalf of their Lord. Seldom do we see something for which we are not looking.

4
– Peter locked in and took control, just as he had seen his Lord do so many times before this. They are walking, Christlike walking, in the confidence and power of God.

6
– Peter had the power and authority to use the name of Jesus Christ. Expectations and faith have everything to do with healing.

Mark 16:17 and 18


13
– Peter deferred the glory to God and used the situation as an opportunity to witness.

15
– Peter identified Jesus. Notice he never said that Jesus was God or the third part of the Trinity.

16
– Faith in the name is why the man was made whole.

18
– All His prophets - Acts 17:2,3; 26:22,23; 28:23; Luke 24:26,27,44; 1Cor 15:3,4; 1Peter 1:10,11; Rev. 19:10

19
– “Times of refreshing” - this is that time that all the prophets and apostles have written about, the time when our Lord the Messiah will return.

21
– “Restoration” means to restore to its former state. “All His holy prophets” refers to the Old Testament. Apostles wrote the new (2Peter 3:1 and 2).

22
– Deuteronomy 18:15-18

25
– Genesis 22:18

26
– Peter calls him “Servant.”

4:6
– Annas and Caiaphas are the same men responsible for the torture and death of Jesus.

10
– Peter receives their questions as an invitation to witness.

13
– Their boldness is extraordinary.

16
– Resistance to the Gospel has always been an issue.

19
– Peter’s boldness is again apparent.

29
– They prayed for boldness.
