Persecution of the Apostles
Acts 5: 17-42
Then, the high priest and all his associates were filled with jealousy and arrested the apostles. But during the night an angel opened the doors of the jail they were in and told the apostles to preach to the people of the temple.
When the high priest returned he was surprised to find that the disciples were not in their cells, but preaching to the people of the temple. He brought them before the elders and questioned their disobedience.
Peter and the other disciple replied: "We must obey God rather than human beings! God has given us the Holy Spirit so that we may follow him". After hearing this and listening to an honourable man named Gamaliel, the high priest and his associates released the apostles.
