Jesus says in John 14:6, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. In our lesson from Acts 3:1-4:4, John and Peter set out to proclaim that Truth. They heal the beggar in the name of Jesus. They direct the Law at the people that gather. However they also provide God’s mercy through the Gospel. However, they are arrested. Those who oppose Jesus and the truth cannot overcome the truth with argument, so they always try to silence the truth by binding it or burying it, denying the salvation that only comes through Jesus Christ.
