Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John and realized that they were uneducated and ordinary men, they were amazed and recognized them as companions of Jesus (Acts 4:8-13). In this passage, the writer of this book raises a question for me. Of those who heard and were amazed by these uneducated and ordinary men, Peter and John, and then recognized them as companions of Jesus; did they raise Peter and John up or did they bring Jesus down? The answer I believe depends on our answer to another question; “Who do you say Jesus is?” (Matthew 16:13-19), and subsequently who we believe our selves to be and how we believe God sees us.
