Bible: Acts 5:27-32

5:27 When they had brought them, they stood them before the council, 1  and the high priest questioned 2  them, 5:28 saying, “We gave 3  you strict orders 4  not to teach in this name. 5  Look, 6  you have filled Jerusalem 7  with your teaching, and you intend to bring this man’s blood 8  on us! 5:29 But Peter and the apostles replied, 9 We must obey 10  God rather than people. 11  5:30 The God of our forefathers 12  raised up Jesus, whom you seized and killed by hanging him on a tree. 13  5:31 God exalted him 14  to his right hand as Leader 15  and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. 16  5:32 And we are witnesses of these events, 17  and so is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey 18  him.”
