Part 4: Acts in Jesus' Name

(This is part 4 of 8 parts in this class)


A study of the book of Acts will soon reveal to you that the acts the apostles did were acts done in the name of Jesus. This was the name all those miracles were done in. It was in the name of Jesus that signs and wonders accompanied the Word spoken by the apostles. (Mark 16:15-20.)

You'll find one of the first and most exciting of examples of this when Peter brings healing to the lame man. (Acts 3:1-10.) The man was begging at the gate called Beautiful and he looked intently towards Peter and John expecting to get something.


Peter then said,

Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.

Acts 3:6 - NKJV


The lame man was immediately healed. Wholeness and strength came to his legs in such a dramatic way that we read,

So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them - walking, leaping, and praising God.

Acts 3:8 - NKJV


The sight of this miracle - I'm sure you can imagine - brought people rushing together from all over the temple compound to surround Peter, John and the healed man. Peter knew he had to say something. By the Holy Spirit he boldly said,

His name (the Name of Jesus), through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.

Acts 3:16 - NKJV
