    I do not understand. First, there are not 10 questions based on Acts 4. The 10th question says, “Why can you answer these simple questions? — which clearly contradicts the initial claim that one can’t answer the questions. Why so negative?

    Acts 4:28-31 Boldness, boldness and boldness. The early believers lived with a vibrant consciousness of God’s sovereignty over the affairs of men as well as with a strong sense of personal responsibility (cf. Acts 2:23). They saw the recent resistance against Peter and John as a facet of the outworking of God’s plan—what His hand and “purpose had determined before to be done.” God works without coercion. He does not force people to do things against their will. To do so would make a mockery of all His judging activities (whether in retribution or reward). Rather, in a way that surpasses the ability of human reason, God’s plan unfolds in such a way as to provide true uncoerced choice for human beings and unhindered omniscience and sovereignty for the Deity.

    4:29. After prefacing their request with a recognition of God as Creator and King, they prayed, “Lord, look on their threats”—a request that identifies the religious authorities as enemies of God and His purposes. Then, rather than asking for protection, they prayed for boldness.

    4:30. Their prayer then connects bold proclamation with the miraculous validation to confirm it to their hearers. The ensuing narrative of Acts records God’s answer to this prayer as the resurrected Messiah miraculously provides “signs and wonders” through the apostles in the power of the Holy Spirit (cf. Acts 1:8).

    4:31. The Father responded to their prayer with an immediate confirmatory sign. God’s approval rested on the household of faith over the temple—the other house. Again the filling with the Holy Spirit enabled powerful God-enabled discourse or proclamation, and so they spoke the word of God with boldness.

    They seem easy enough? They prayed and they prayed some more. They gave and they gave some more. They preached and they preached some more. Somebody explained the two priests once but it don’t bother me none.
    I think ive given testimony here on God’s healing power praying according to

    Acts 4:29, 30
    “And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,
    By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.”
