By what power, or by what name, have ye done this?


nd it came to pass on the marrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes and Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem.

And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, “By what power, or buy what name, have ye done this?”

Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said unto them, ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole, be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.

This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:5-12 KJV.

ONE WAY to Heaven

Other, heteros, Strong’s #2087- Different, generic distinctions, another kind, not of the same nature, form or class. Heteros and heteros (adverb) repeated one and another different from each other (1 Cor. 15:40).

Here heteros makes a distinction and an exclusivity, with no second choices, opinions, or options. “Jesus, You are the One. You are the only One. There is no heteros, no other!”  Salvation is of the Lord. Ps. 3:8; Luke 19:9.

    It is so true, Manny.

    There are “no second choices, opinions, or options. “Jesus, You are the One. You are the only One. There is no heteros, no other!”

    I wish we heard this question more often in our time. It seems that much of the church lacks power which is readily available through the Word of God.

    This is a great section of scripture. Thank you for sharing. You know how I always enjoy your word studies.

    Keep up the good work, my friend.
