Peter Heals a Man

Chapter 56

Peter and John see a lame man

A man who could not walk was carried by his friends to the temple every day. He sat by its doors, asking for money. One day Peter and John saw him. Acts 3:1–2

He asked for money

When they were near him, he asked them for money. Peter said that he did not have any but that he would give him something else. Acts 3:3–6

Peter blessed the man

Peter blessed him in the name of Jesus Christ and healed him, then helped the man stand up. Acts 3:6–7

The man walked

The man began to walk for the first time in his life! Many people saw the man walking and leaping. They knew that it was a miracle. They knew that Peter had the power of God. Peter told them that Jesus Christ had given him the power to heal the man. A great missionary, Peter helped many people believe in Jesus Christ. Acts 3:8–13, 16; Acts 4:4
