Acts 5-6

  • 5:1-6 – Ananias did not die because he only gave part, but because he presented it as the whole while holding some back. He lied about his gift to God.
  • 5:17-18 – They are arrested because the religious leaders told them not to teach in Jesus’ name.
  • 5:33-42 – Gamaliel gives wise counsel that the religious authorities ought to just leave the disciples alone because the effort will die unless it’s from God and if it’s from God they won’t be able to stop it.
  • 6:8-15 – Like with Jesus, some folks opposed Stephen, twisting his words, to say he had committed blasphemy.
