God ... Has raised Up Christ

Book of Acts

A Sermon on Acts 5:29-32

But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers raised Jesus, whom you killed by hanging him on a tree. God exalted him at his right hand as Leader and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. And we are witnesses to these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.” (ESV)

Christ; God's way of salvation; the world sees the Gospel as irrelevant; the glory of God not recognised by the world; 'human' saviours acceptable in society; contrast in style between the world's saviour and God's Saviour.
