“The men whom you put in prison are in the Temple area and are teaching the people.” The religious authorities had tried to silence the apostles in their teaching about the resurrection of Jesus. They threw them in jail and beat them but couldn’t silence them. What a change in behavior for these cowering followers of Jesus. They went through a complete transformation through the power of the resurrection.
We are called to speak out and evangelize, as well. We need to bear witness to our faith in spite of the opposition we may receive.
