Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John and realized that they were uneducated and ordinary men, they were amazed and recognized them as companions of Jesus. (Acts 4:13)

By now, as the story has unfolded in the Book of Acts, Peter and John (and the rest of the disciples) have spoken in diverse languages, they have healed a man crippled since birth, they have been thrown in prison and subsequently released. But none of these things are what amaze the people. “When they saw the boldness of Peter and John . . . they were amazed” (v. 13); “when they saw the boldness of Peter and John . . . they recognized them as companions of Jesus” (v. 13). When they see our boldness, they will be amazed and recognize us as Christ-followers as well. – rc
