First Reading

Acts 5,27-32.40-41

When they had brought them in to face the Sanhedrin, the high priest demanded an explanation.

'We gave you a strong warning', he said, 'not to preach in this name, and what have you done? You have filled Jerusalem with your teaching, and seem determined to fix the guilt for this man's death on us.'

In reply Peter and the apostles said, 'Obedience to God comes before obedience to men;

it was the God of our ancestors who raised up Jesus, whom you executed by hanging on a tree.

By his own right hand God has now raised him up to be leader and Saviour, to give repentance and forgiveness of sins through him to Israel.

We are witnesses to this, we and the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey him.'

and they had the apostles called in, gave orders for them to be flogged, warned them not to speak in the name of Jesus and released them.

And so they left the presence of the Sanhedrin, glad to have had the honour of suffering humiliation for the sake of the name.
