FOURTH SUNDAY OF EASTER — Year B

First Reading: Acts 4:8-12

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles.

Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, spoke up, “Leaders of the people! Elders!  If we must answer today for a good deed done to a crippled person and explain how this person was restored to health, then you and all the people of Israel must realize that it was done in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene whom you crucified and whom God raised from the dead.  In the power of that Name, this former crippled person stands before you perfectly sound.  This Jesus is ‘the stone rejected by the builders which has become the chief cornerstone.’  There is no salvation in anyone else, for there is no other name in the whole world given to the human race by which we are to be saved.”

The Word of God recorded in the Acts of the Apostles.
