As they were speaking to the people, the priests and 1the captain of the temple guard and 2the Sadducees 3came up to them,
being greatly disturbed because they were teaching the people and proclaiming 4in Jesus the resurrection from the dead.
And they laid hands on them and 5put them in jail until the next day, for it was already evening.
But many of those who had heard the message believed; and 6the number of the men came to be about five thousand.
On the next day, their 7rulers and elders and scribes were gathered together in Jerusalem;
and 8Annas the high priest was there, and 9Caiaphas and John and Alexander, and all who were of high-priestly descent.
When they had placed them in the center, they began to inquire, "By what power, or in what name, have you done this?"
Then Peter, 10filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, "11Rulers and elders of the people,
if we are on trial today for 12a benefit done to a sick man, as to how this man has been made well,
let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that 13by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom 14God raised from the dead -by this name this man stands here before you in good health.
"15He is the 16STONE WHICH WAS 17REJECTED by you, THE BUILDERS, but WHICH BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone.
"And there is salvation in 18no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved."
