Kefa and Yochanan were still speaking to the people when the cohanim, the captain in charge of the Temple police, and the Tz'dukim came upon them,
very annoyed that they were teaching the people the doctrine of resurrection from the dead and offering Yeshua as proof.
The Temple police arrested them; and since it was already evening, they put them in custody overnight.
However, many of those who heard the message trusted; the number of men alone was about five thousand.
The next day, the people's rulers, elders and Torah-teachers assembled in Yerushalayim,
along with 'Anan the cohen hagadol, Kayafa, Yochanan, Alexander and the other men from the family of the cohen hagadol.
They had the emissaries stand before them and asked, "By what power or in what name did you do this?"
Then Kefa, filled with the Ruach HaKodesh, said to them, "Rulers and elders of the people!
If we are being examined today about a good deed done for a disabled person, if you want to know how he was restored to health,
then let it be known to you and to all the people of Isra'el that it is in the name of the Messiah, Yeshua from Natzeret, whom you had executed on a stake as a criminal but whom God has raised from the dead, that this man stands before you perfectly healed.
"This Yeshua is the stone rejected by you builders which has become the cornerstone.
There is salvation in no one else! For there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by whom we must be saved!"
