Preface - The rulers of the Jews, offended with the teaching of Peter and John, imprison them. Being brought before the council,
Peter boldly avoucheth the late cure to have been wrought in the name of Jesus, and that men can be saved by no other name.
The council, struck with the boldness of the two apostles, after conferring together dismiss them with a threatening charge to speak
no more in the name of Jesus. The church betaketh itself to prayer. The presence of the Holy Ghost is signified by the house shaking,
and the apostles thereby emboldened to speak the word; the unity and charity of the church, who have their possessions in common.

Q20 - Who is the Redeemer of God's elect?
A - The only Redeemer of God's elect is the Lord Jesus Christ, who, being the eternal Son of God became man, and so was,
and continues to be God and Man, in two distinct natures and one person, forever.

The Lord our Shepherd - The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23 v 1
It is exceedingly interesting to know the many names by which Christ call Himself in the Bible. These are above one hundred, I think one hundred
and seven. He calls Himself a rose, 'I am the rose of Sharon,' and a lily, 'I am the lily of the valley.' The reason why He has so many names is
that one name would not describe Him; He has so many offices that one name would not explain them; nay all of them put together do not,
for Paul said, 'Unto me who am less than the least of all saints is this grace given, that I might preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable
riches of Christ.' Of all the names given, that of a shepherd is the sweetest.
