Peter's Miraculous Escape From Prison

1 It was about this time that King Herod1 arrested some who belonged to the church, intending to persecute them. 2 He had James, the brother of John,2 put to death with the sword.3 3 When he saw that this pleased the Jews,4 he proceeded to seize Peter also. This happened during the Feast of Unleavened Bread.5 4 After arresting him, he put him in prison, handing him over to be guarded by four squads of four soldiers each. Herod intended to bring him out for public trial after the Passover.6 5 So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him.7
