Now at Lystra there used to sit a certain man, lame in his feet, a cripple from birth, who had never walked. He was listening while Paul was preaching, and Paul, looking intently at him, and perceiving that he had faith to be made whole, said in a loud voice, "Stand upright on your feet!"

After this the appointed seventy others, and sent them two by two before his face, into every city and place into which he himself intended to go. And he thus addressed them.

One day Peter and John were going up together for the hour of prayer, at three in the afternoon, when a man lame from his birth was carried along, who was wont to be laid each day near the gate of the Temple called the Beautiful Gate, to ask alms of those who were going into the Temple. When he saw Peter and John about to go into the Temple, he kept asking them for alms; read more.
Peter fixed his eyes upon him, as did John, and said, "Look at us." So he waited, expecting to get something from them. Then Peter said: "I have neither silver nor gold, but what I do have, this I am going to give to you; in the name of Jesus Christ, the Nazarene, walk!" Then taking his right hand he lifted him up. Instantly his feet and ankle-bones were strengthened; and leaping forth he stood on his feet, and began to walk, and went with them into the Temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God. When all the people saw him walking and praising God, and recognized that this was the man who used to sit and beg at the Beautiful Gate of the Temple, they were filled with awe and amazement at what had happened to him. While he was clinging to Peter and John, all the people crowded awe-struck around them, in what was known as Solomon's Portico. When he saw this, Peter said to the people. "Men of Israel, why are you wondering at this? Why do you stare at us, as if by our own power or piety we had made this man to walk?

In consequence people would even bring out their sick into the streets, and place them upon beds and pallets as Peter was passing, that at least his shadow might fall upon some of them. The people of the towns near Jerusalem also continued to come in crowds, bringing their sick and those who were harried by unclean spirits, and all of them were healed.

While they were yet speaking he stood among them and said, "Peace be to you!" They were startled and terrified and thought that they were seeing a ghost. And he said to them. "Why are you disturbed? And why do questions rise in your hearts? read more.
"Look at my hands and my feet. It is I! Feel me and see; for a ghost has not flesh and blood as I have." Then he showed them his hands and feet. But while they still did not believe it for joy, and were filled with wonder, he asked them, "Have you anything here to eat?" So they gave him a piece of broiled fish, and he took it and ate it in their presence. Then he said to them, "These are my words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, how all things must be fulfilled which are written in the Law of Moses, and the prophets, and the Psalms concerning me." Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, and he said: "Thus it is written that the Christ should suffer and rise again from the dead, the third day; "and that repentance unto remission of sins should be preached in his name unto all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. "You must bear testimony to this. "And I will send forth the promise of my Father upon you. But tarry in Jerusalem until you are clothed with power from on high."

On the evening of that same day, the first day of the week, although the doors of the room where the disciples gathered had been locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came, and there he stood among them, saying. "Peace to you!" As he said this he showed them his hands and his side. Then were the disciple glad, when they saw the Lord. Then Jesus said to them again. "Peace to you. As my Father has sent me forth, I also now am sending you." read more.
When he had said this he breathed upon them and said: "Receive the Holy Spirit. If you remit any one's sins, they are remitted; if you retain them they are retained."





And to whom did he swear that they should never enter into his rest, if not to those who had proved faithless?


True, through their unbelief they were broken off, and by your faith you stand. Do not be puffed up, but fear;

For the Good News is come to us just as it did to them. But the message they heard was of no benefit to them, because they did not share the faith of those who gave heed to it.

When the day of Pentecost was fully come, and they were all together in the same place, there came suddenly from the sky a sound like the onrush of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit was giving them utterance. Now there were, staying in Jerusalem. devout Jews from many and distant lands. So when this noise was heard, the crowd gathered in bewilderment because each man heard them speaking in his own language. The were beside themselves with wonder. "Are not these Galileans who are speaking?" they exclaimed. "Then how is it that each one of us hears them speak his own mother tongue? Parthians, Medes, Elamites, dwellers in Mesopotamia, in Judea, in Cappadocia, in Pontus and Asia, in Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, and the district of Lybia around Cretans and Arabians, we all hear these men telling in our own tongue what great things God has done." All were astonished and bewildered and kept saying to one another, "What can this mean?" But others were saying with jeer, "These men are full of sweet wine."
