1And as they were speaking to the people, the priests and the captain of the temple and the Sad'ducees came upon them,2annoyed because they were teaching the people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from the dead.3And they arrested them and put them in custody until the morrow, for it was already evening.4But many of those who heard the word believed; and the number of the men came to about five thousand.5On the morrow their rulers and elders and scribes were gathered together in Jerusalem,6with Annas the high priest and Ca'iaphas and John and Alexander, and all who were of the high-priestly family.7And when they had set them in the midst, they inquired, "By what power or by what name did you do this?"8Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, "Rulers of the people and elders,9if we are being examined today concerning a good deed done to a cripple, by what means this man has been healed,10be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by him this man is standing before you well.11This is the stone which was rejected by you builders, but which has become the head of the corner.12And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."
Psalms 118:1-2, 4, 22-27
1O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his steadfast love endures for ever!2Let Israel say, "His steadfast love endures for ever."4Let those who fear the LORD say, "His steadfast love endures for ever."22The stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner.23This is the LORD's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.24This is the day which the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.25Save us, we beseech thee, O LORD! O LORD, we beseech thee, give us success!26Blessed be he who enters in the name of the LORD! We bless you from the house of the LORD.27The LORD is God, and he has given us light. Bind the festal procession with branches, up to the horns of the altar!
1After this Jesus revealed himself again to the disciples by the Sea of Tibe'ri-as; and he revealed himself in this way.2Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin, Nathan'a-el of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zeb'edee, and two others of his disciples were together.3Simon Peter said to them, "I am going fishing." They said to him, "We will go with you." They went out and got into the boat; but that night they caught nothing.4Just as day was breaking, Jesus stood on the beach; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus.5Jesus said to them, "Children, have you any fish?" They answered him, "No."6He said to them, "Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some." So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in, for the quantity of fish.7That disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord!" When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his clothes, for he was stripped for work, and sprang into the sea.8But the other disciples came in the boat, dragging the net full of fish, for they were not far from the land, but about a hundred yards off.9When they got out on land, they saw a charcoal fire there, with fish lying on it, and bread.10Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish that you have just caught."11So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three of them; and although there were so many, the net was not torn.12Jesus said to them, "Come and have breakfast." Now none of the disciples dared ask him, "Who are you?" They knew it was the Lord.13Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and so with the fish.14This was now the third time that Jesus was revealed to the disciples after he was raised from the dead.
