The religious leaders got in Peter and John's face and shouted "What are you doing?" That's kind of a paraphrase but I'm pretty sure they didn't sit down with them at the local Star of David Bucks and calmly say, "So tell us more about these miracles you're performing. Would you like a scone before continuing?"
What gets to me is these "leaders" don't seem to care that a man crippled from birth was healed. Now Peter starts talking. And when Peter talks, you'd better get comfortable because he usually has a lot to say. He says, "Are we being questioned because we've done a good deed for a crippled man?" (That there is not a paraphrase, it's Acts 4:9)
Peter and John performed a miracle. The whole community saw this young crippled boy grow into a crippled man. Now Peter and John heal him and they have a message about the Power that actually did the healing. Wouldn't you want to know more? The religious leaders didn't. They saw a challenge to their authority.
How many times have we ignored something good because it challenges our "authority"?
I may be crazy, but if I met someone who could heal the lame with a touch and a prayer, I'd want to know how they did it!
What do you think?
