The rulers of the Jews, offended with the teaching of Peter and John, imprison them. Being brought before the council, Peter boldly avoucheth the late cure to have been wrought in the name of Jesus, and that men can be saved by no other name. The council, struck with the boldness of the two apostles, after conferring together dismiss them with a threatening charge to speak no more in the name of Jesus. The church betaketh itself to prayer. The presence of the Holy Ghost is signified by the house shaking, and the apostles thereby emboldened to speak the word; the unity and charity of the church, who have their possessions in common.
