Bible studies in Acts Chapter 4 cover Annas High Priest and Of On heart Of One Mind. The questions are designed for personal or group inductive style Bible study and discussion.

For more information on the early church, see recent books on the Book Of Acts.

Acts Chapter 4

Annas High Priest, vs 1-22:

1. Compare the authority priests had at that time with their authority in your country, now. Who was in charge of all local, even statewide government?

2. Since Annas was the "High Priest" of Israel, what political office in your region would have the same authority?

3. What do you think changed Peter from the man who, just 2 months before, was so afraid of these same leaders he cowered and denied Jesus?

4. If Jesus is the only name by which we must be saved, how can those who have never heard of Him and those who died before Him be saved?

5. Why do you feel it would take courage for "unschooled" men to speak to the chief priests this way?

6. What is it about the man who was healed that made the rulers reconsider Peter's punishment?

7. What if the Governor of your state, who could tax, imprison, or even have you executed, told you to stop telling people about Jesus? What would you do?

Of One Heart Of One Mind vs 23-37:

1. The believers said David had prophesied what Herod and Pilate were doing. Do you feel this is true?

2. They went on to say their government and country were only doing what God's power and will had decided beforehand. Does this apply to both the good and bad things that happen in your life today?

3. What response did they request from God for the conspiracy and threats of their enemies?

4. What do you feel it would be like to be of one heart and mind with 100 other people? With 10? With 1?

5. Who administered the giving to see that it was fair? Was there a committee, charity or government involved? How does this differ from the various forms of giving today?

6. Did the people donating the money know those receiving it? (see Acts 2:44).

7. Do you think those receiving it felt "entitled" to it?

8. Do you feel the people were told they had a "duty" to give or did they do so without compulsion?
