Whatever people may do or say, the fact remains: Christ is risen! Therefore, we speak. Notice that Peter and John were identified as common and uneducated. That did not deter them, because they had been with Christ, they had the Holy Spirit, and they were called by God. Thus, despite opposition, even if we are a minority, we Christians confess the “surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus,” for there is nothing compared to what Christ has guaranteed us.
