The Sanhedrin commanded Peter and John not to preach the resurrection of Jesus under the threat of punishment. The Apostles possessed boldness in defense of the Gospel. They were ready to go anywhere and everywhere to announce the Good News.

Let’s look to the boldness of the Apostles and be strong in the strength of God’s Word.
