As the place of worship for the nation of Israel, the temple became the place where the Apostles would gather to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. But doing so also brought resistance and persecution from the Jewish religious leaders.
Ordered to stop preaching in the name of Jesus, Peter, speaking for the rest of the Apostles made the choice clear; they had to obey God rather than men. The question for us becomes, when face by persecution, which will inevitably come, how will we respond?
Thank you for listening to today's lesson. May you be blessed through the teaching of God's Word.
