Acts 3:1-26, NLT
Acts of the Apostles 3
Peter Heals a Crippled Beggar
1Peter and John went to the Temple one afternoon to take part in the three o’clock prayer service.
4Peter and John looked at him intently, and Peter said, “Look at us!”
7Then Peter took the lame man by the right hand and helped him up. And as he did, the man’s feet and ankles were instantly healed and strengthened.
9All the people saw him walking and heard him praising God.
Peter Preaches in the Temple
12Peter saw his opportunity and addressed the crowd. “People of Israel,” he said, “what is so surprising about this? And why stare at us as though we had made this man walk by our own power or godliness?
16“Through faith in the name of Jesus, this man was healed—and you know how crippled he was before. Faith in Jesus’ name has healed him before your very eyes.
17“Friends,*3:17 Greek Brothers. I realize that what you and your leaders did to Jesus was done in ignorance.
24“Starting with Samuel, every prophet spoke about what is happening today.
