What did Gamaliel say should be done to the apostles when they were taken before the Sanhedrin in Jerusalem?
A. They should be killed, so that their message would not pollute the people. B. They should be let go; if their message was from men it would fail, but if it was from God it could not be stopped. C. Nothing should be done to them because Gamaliel had been told in a dream that their message was true and that they Must not be harmed. D. They should appear before the people to publicly debate their message with the Pharisees. E. They should be thrown into prison indefinitely.
They should be let go; if their message was from men it would fail, but if it was from God it could not be stopped.
(Acts 5:38-39) Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God. (NIV)
