Chapter 5 begins with the sobering story of Ananias and Sapphira, a couple that the Lord struck dead for their hypocrisy. Ever wonder what it would be like if that happened more often? We’ll then see God working wonders through the apostles. That is followed by a confrontation between the apostles and the Sanhedrin led by the high priest, in the midst of which the twelve are released from prison by an angel. The chapter ends with the apostles continuing to teach and preach Jesus Christ.
