Acts 1: The Awakening
Jesus Christ ascends into Heaven, having instructed his disciples to wait in Jerusalem for the Holy Spirit. The Apostle Peter and others begin preaching the resurrection to great effect and great persecution, and thousands believe. Peter heals a crippled person and is brought before the Sanhedrin (the Jewish ruling council.) After being jailed, an angel of God releases the disciples so they can continue to proclaim the Good News. The deacon Stephen is also arrested, and brought before the Sanhedrin under false charges, leading to the first biblical appearance of the man who will become Paul.
