In Acts chapter four, we learn that persectution came upon Peter and John, by the hands of the religious leaders of their day, because they preached and taught the people of Jesus' death and resurrection.
This scene started in chapter three when these two godly disciples approached the Temple for their time of prayer. At the gate, there was a lame man of fourty years who asked everyone who entered for monetary help. "Peter said; Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk." Well, this created an uproar! Everyone began to question the source of the power that Peter and John possessed that would cause this man to be healded. Peter said "Neither is their salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men,k whereby we must be saved."
There is no other name that can save a person from the penalty of sin, but the name of Jesus. God's only begotten Son is the only one who can wash us from the guilt of sin.
