The Lame Man Healed (3:1-10). Instead of receiving money from Peter and John, the lame man “in the name of Jesus Christ” was able to walk for the first time. This miracle astonished and amazed the people.
Peter’s Second Message (3:11-26). Peter testifies that the lame man enjoys complete health based on faith in Jesus’ name. This same Jesus, the Author of spiritual and physical healing (see 2:38; 3:16), the crowd rejected and murdered, but God raised him from the dead. To this fact, Peter and John are witnesses (see 1:8, 22; 2:32). Similarly, as in 2:38, Peter urges the crowd to repent from their sins and turn to God.
Knowing that Jesus is the Author of life, will you reject or turn to him?
