“And the high priest asked them… we commanded you, that you should not teach in this name… But Peter answering, and the apostles, said: We ought to obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers hath raised up Jesus, whom you put to death… And we are witnesses of these things, and the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to all that obey him… And they indeed went from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were accounted worthy to suffer reproach for the name of Jesus. And they ceased not every day in the temple, and from house to house, to teach and preach Christ Jesus.” (Acts v. 29-42)
