What if the anger we see in others (or ourselves) actually masks hidden insecurities, guilt, or fear? If we could look beneath the rage, could what we see motivate to exercise more grace?

In today's episode we'll look at some possible motivations for those persecuting the apostles. We'll explore why a particular statement of Peter's incited such a heated response. Then we'll dive into the first church conflict.

In each of these instances, we see that life then isn't all that different. And we can apply the wisdom of the those who walked with Jesus to our present-day lives.
