- Affected Teaching
- In these opening verses of Acts 3, Peter performs a miracle of healing
on a man who was lame from birth. This man was so grateful for being healed
that he was walking and leaping all around praising God that He healed him.
Verse 11 in the modern versions leave out a tremendous piece of information.
In the modern versions it sound like the man was not healed, since they left
out the phrase “which was healed.” It sounds like the man was clinging to
Peter and John to stabilize himself so he could stand. The modern versions
deny a great miracle had taken place which denies Christ the glory due Him.
This man was totally healed and he clung to Peter and John out of joy, not
out of necessity.
