Acts 5:27–32

Acts 5:27–32 (NA28) 27Ἀγαγόντες δὲ αὐτοὺς ἔστησαν ἐν τῷ συνεδρίῳ. καὶ ἐπηρώτησεν αὐτοὺς ὁ ἀρχιερεὺς And (when they) had brought them and made (them) stand in the Sanhedrin and the high priest put a question to them The trial began with the apostles being brought before the Sanhedrin.

Week 12 – Acts 5:22-26

Acts 5:22–26 (NA28) 22οἱ δὲ παραγενόμενοι ὑπηρέται οὐχ εὗρον αὐτοὺς ἐν τῇ φυλακῇ· ἀναστρέψαντες δὲ ἀπήγγειλαν But the officers who came did not find them in the prison, they returned and reported The officers (οἱ ὑπηρεται [hoi hupēretai]).

week 10 – Acts 5:17-21

The section links up directly with the prayer in 4:30 that God would [...]

Acts week 9 Acts 5:1-11

Acts 5:1–11 (NA28) It is certainly true that the story introduces us to a different world of thought from that of today.

Acts Week 8 4:32-37

32Τοῦ δὲ πλήθους τῶν πιστευσάντων ἦν καρδία καὶ ψυχὴ μία , καὶ οὐδὲ εἷς τι τῶν ὑπαρχόντων αὐτῷ ἔλεγεν ἴδιον εἶναι ἀλλʼ ἦν αὐτοῖς ἅπαντα κοινά. Now the group of those who believe were in one heart and soul, and no one of anything what belonged to him said was his own but all (things) were in common The [...]
