Acts 5:38-39 – Supernatural Evidence

Today’sReading: 1 Kings 2:1‐3:3, Acts 5:1‐42, Psalm 125:1‐5, Proverbs 16:25

Acts 5:38-39 So in the present case I tell you, keep away from these men and let them alone, for if this plan or this undertaking is of man, it will fail; but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them. You might even be found opposing God!” So they took his advice.

Context: The Pharisee s want to kill “Peter and the apostles.”  Gamaliel, a respected Pharisee, makes this argument against killing them.  They follow his advice.

Observation: Even in the eyes of unbelievers, what has happened through the spread of the gospel of Jesus Christ is proof of our faith being “of God.”

Application: When I face doubters, I want to remember the passage in Acts and use it to support the truth of the gospel.

What passages in scripture give you apologetic backing to your faith?
