Today's reading: Acts 5:17-42

The Jewish leaders are UNHAPPY about the apostles preaching and spreading the Gospel message of Christ. They were jealous. And when their efforts to silence the apostles fails and Peter then candidly addresses them about being responsible for killing Jesus whom God has exalted as "Leader and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins" (vs. 31), the council is outraged. The jealousy factor intensifies to the point that this group of Jewish leaders actually wants to kill the apostles (vs. 33).

What did you notice about jealousy from this passage? What are some of the emotions connected to being jealous? What does this account reveal about the influence jealous thoughts and feelings have on our judgment and reasoning? Tami

I think they were jealous because they were afraid and that if they give in to the word of the apostles it would mean they would have to change their way of living and the would not be so popular.

Jealousy ran deep within the Sanhedrin. This was the same group that had been so jealous of Jesus Himself.
