Context Readings

Peter And John On Trial Before The Sanhedrin

16 saying, "What should we do to these men? For we cannot deny that a significant miracle was performed by them, and everybody living in Jerusalem knows it. 17 But we do not want this [teaching] to spread any further so let us threaten them [and demand] that they do not speak to anyone about Jesus anymore." 18 And so they called Peter and John in and warned them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus [anymore].
