What do you do when you come up against the same situation that led to the greatest failure of your life?


Arrested by the Jewish leadership, Peter and John find themselves answering to not just anyone - but men all too familiar. In this moment, Peter comes face to face with his greatest failure, but something is different this time.
In today's episode we'll look at why history doesn't repeat itself in Peter's life.


We'll also explore two other mini-lessons from the text in Acts 4 and 5: how being "untrained and educated" in the world's eyes may not be such a bad thing, and how the early church's prayers for Peter and John give us an example for our own prayers for others.
