Book of Acts
One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer.
2 Now a man who was lame from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day.
3 When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money.
4 Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, ‘Look at us!’
5 So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.
6 ‘Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have, I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.’
7 Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong.
8 He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God.
9 When all the people saw him walking and praising God, 10 they recognised him as the same man who used to sit begging at the temple gate called Beautiful, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.
11 While the man held on to Peter and John, all the people were astonished and came running to them.
12 When Peter saw this, he said to them: ‘Fellow Israelites, why does this surprise you? Why do you stare at us as if by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk?
13 The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus.
16 By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong.
It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has completely healed him, as you can all see.
The next day the rulers, and the teachers of the law met in Jerusalem.
7 They had Peter and John brought before them and began to question them: ‘By what power or what name did you do this?’
8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them:
9 ‘If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a man who was lame and are being asked how he was healed,
10 then know this, you and all the people of Israel: it is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, that this man stands before you healed.’
When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realised that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.
14 But since they could see the man who had been healed standing there with them, there was nothing they could say.
15 So they ordered them to withdraw and then conferred together.
16 ‘What are we going to do with these men?’
‘Everyone living in Jerusalem knows they have performed a miracle, and we cannot deny it.’
All the people were praising God for what had happened. 22 The man who was miraculously healed was over forty years old.
On their release, Peter and John went back to their own people and reported all that the chief priests and the elders had said to them. 24 When they heard this, they raised their voices together in prayer
29 ‘Now, Lord, enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. 30 Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.’
31 After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.
The apostles performed many signs and wonders among the people.
15 As a result, people brought those who were sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by.
16 Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing those who were sick and those tormented by evil spirits, and all of them were healed.
So, the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, ‘It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables.
3 Brothers and sisters, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them 4 and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word.’
5 This proposal pleased the whole group. They chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit;
8 Now Stephen, a man full of God’s grace and power, performed great wonders and signs among the people.
All except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria.
Philip went down to a city in Samaria and proclaimed the Messiah there.
6 When the crowds heard Philip and saw the signs he performed, they all paid close attention to what he said.
7 For with shrieks, evil spirits came out of many, and many who were paralysed or lame were healed.
8 So there was great joy in that city.
Then Peter began to speak: ‘I now realise how true it is that God does not show favouritism
35 but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right.
36 You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, announcing the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all.
37 You know what has happened after the baptism that John preached.
38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.
While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message.
45 The believers who had come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on Gentiles.
46 For they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God.
As Peter travelled about the country, he went to visit the Lord’s people who lived in Lydda.
33 There he found a man named Aeneas, who was paralysed and had been bedridden for eight years.
34 ‘Aeneas,’ Peter said to him, ‘Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and roll up your mat.’ Immediately Aeneas got up.
35 All those who lived in Lydda and Sharon saw him and turned to the Lord.
36 In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha, she was always doing good and helping the poor.
37 About that time she became sick and died, and her body was washed and placed in an upstairs room.
When Peter arrived, he was taken upstairs to the room. 40 Peter sent them all out; then he got down on his knees and prayed.
Turning towards the dead woman, he said,
‘Tabitha, get up.’
She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up.
41 He took her by the hand and helped her to her feet.
Then he called for the believers, especially the widows, and presented her to them alive.
42 This became known all over Joppa, and many people believed in the Lord.
In Lystra there sat a man who was lame.
He had been that way from birth and had never walked.
9 He listened to Paul as he was speaking.
Paul looked directly at him, saw that he had faith to be healed
10 and called out, ‘Stand up on your feet!’
At that, the man jumped up and began to walk.
So Paul and Barnabas spent considerable time there, speaking boldly for the Lord, who confirmed the message of his grace by enabling them to perform signs and wonders
God did extraordinary miracles through Paul, 12 so that even aprons that had touched him were taken to those who were sick, and their sicknesses were healed and the evil spirits left them.
There were many lamps in the upstairs room where we were meeting.
9 Seated in a window was a young man, who was sinking into a deep sleep. He fell to the ground from the third storey and was picked up dead.
10 Paul went down, threw himself on the young man and put his arms round him. ‘Don’t be alarmed. He’s alive!’
11 Then he went upstairs again and broke bread and ate. After talking until daylight, he left. 12 The people took the young man home alive and were greatly comforted.
The ship was caught by the storm and could not head into the wind.
After they had gone a long time without food, Paul said: ‘Last night an angel of the God stood beside me and said, “Do not be afraid, Paul. God has graciously given you the lives of all who sail with you.”
25 So keep up your courage, men, for I have faith in God that it will happen just as he told me. 26 Nevertheless, we must run aground on some island.’
Once safely on shore, we found out that the island was called Malta.
2 The islanders showed us unusual kindness. They built a fire and welcomed us all because it was raining and cold.
6 The people expected him to swell up or suddenly fall dead; but after waiting a long time and seeing nothing unusual happen to him, they changed their minds and said he was a god.
7 There was an estate nearby that belonged to the chief official of the island. He welcomed us to his home and showed us generous hospitality for three days.
8 His father was sick in bed, suffering from fever and dysentery.
Paul went in to see him and, after prayer, placed his hands on him and healed him.
9 When this had happened, the rest of those on the island who were sick came and were healed.
