Acts 3:11-26 – Empowered to Preach the Promise
Last week we saw Jesus heal a crippled beggar at the gateway into the Temple courts, through the Apostle Peter. That healing created a ruckus. Everyone knew that old crippled man and were shocked that he was walking around on strong legs. As a crowd gathered on a covered porch in the Temple called Solomon’s Portico. The once shy Peter stood and preached his second sermon in Jerusalem since the Holy Spirit came on the Apostles in power. This passage is that sermon. In it we see the overwhelming centrality of Christ and understanding who Jesus is, along with a beautiful promise and assurance to us through Him.
