As we continue in our study of Acts, we see how Chapters 3 & 4 fit together. In our previous lesson, we saw Peter challenged by the Sandhedrin, a council of approximately 71 priests, temple guards, and Sadducees, and how he dealt with them. These Jews knew full well that there was proof of an empty tomb, yet their hostility toward Peter's message was evident. How did Peter handle them? Scripture says Peter was "full" of the Holy Spirit. Is this the same as walking by means of the Holy Spirit?
Peter boldly challenges the Sandhedrin, and we are introduced to Apologetics. In this lesson, we begin to learn how we believers in the Church Age can accurately apply the doctrine of Apologetics in our own lives.
