The Early Church Had Boldness in Defense of the Truth

The  Sanhedrin had commanded  Peter and John not to preach about the  resurrection under threat of punishment. In this passage we see the boldness of the  apostles. They were ready to go anywhere and everywhere in defense of the  Gospel. What  is the  “Good News?” I 1 Cor. 15, sometimes called  the  resurrection chapter, verse1-4  tell us that Gospel consists  of the fact that Jesus  died and  was buried and that He rose from the dead. Let’s look at the  boldness of the   apostles and seek to have that  same  kind of  boldness today.

We must know what we believe and  why. We  must believe that the Word of God is inerrant and  infallible. If we  know what we  believe and  why we  can have  boldness in presenting the  Gospel to a lost world. In Jude 3 there is a  passage that fits the  situation,  “Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.”
