PodcastAndy Bruins preaching from Acts on Sunday 9th August 2021.

This second half of chapter 9 contains two stories of miraculous healing. The focus now shifts back to Peter, the chief of the Apostles, and here we are given a clear reminder of the authority that Jesus has given to him as His representative. This will be important as we go on into chapter 10, where Peter will become a spokesman for God’s plan to take the gospel to the gentiles.

What is different?
