Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500s
Today is February 24, 2018 - in the 21 Century
February -- month of Februa
Latin Februarius "of Februa"
Latin Februa(s) "Februa" + -arius "ary (pertaining to)"
Latin Februarius mensis"month of Februa"
Latin dies februatus"day of purification"
Februarius had 28 days, until circa 450 BC when it had 23 or 24 days on some of every second year, until Julius when it had 29 days on every fourth year and 28 days otherwise.
Februa is the Roman festival of purification held on February fifteenth. It is possibly of Sabine origin.
We acknowledge Yehovahs calendar
We are now in the 12th month called Adar 7th day

Purim is coming! - Purim will be next Sabbath and Sunday March 3 and 4th
 But the Jews that were at Shushan assembled together on the thirteenth day thereof; and on the fourteenth thereof; and on the fifteenth day of the same they rested, and made it a day of feasting and gladness.
 Therefore the Jews of the villages, that dwelt in the unwalled towns, made the fourteenth day of the month Adar a day of gladness and feasting, and a good day, and of sending portions one to another.
 And Mordecai wrote these things, and sent letters unto all the Jews that were in all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus, both nigh and far,
 To stablish this among them, that they should keep the fourteenth day of the month Adar, and the fifteenth day of the same, yearly,
 As the days wherein the Jews rested from their enemies, and the month which was turned unto them from sorrow to joy, and from mourning into a good day: that they should make them days of feasting and joy, and of sending portions one to another, and gifts to the poor.
A profile of Brother Peter
Peter’s life in part according to scripture
In no certain order:
Simon Bar (son) Jona
Peter had a brother Andrew
Peter and Andrew were fisherman
Peter was one of the 12 original apostles
I will read a few only
And Yeshua, walking by the sea of Galilee,
saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea:
for they were fishers.
 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.
 And when Yeshua was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever.  And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.
 And when he
had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and
when the evening was come, he was there alone.
 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.
 And in the fourth watch of the night Yeshua went unto them, walking on the sea.
 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
 But straightway Yeshua spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Yeshua.
 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
 And immediately Yeshua stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
 And he
called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable.
said, Are ye also yet without understanding? Do not ye
yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the
into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do
men say that I the Son of man am?
 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Messiah, the Son of the living God.
 And Yeshua answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock (Me the Messiah) I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven,
 From that
time forth began Yeshua to shew
unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things
of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again
the third day.
 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.
 But Yeshua turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
Then said Yeshua
unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and
take up his cross, and follow me.
 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.
And after six days Yeshua taketh
Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up
into an high mountain apart,
And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his
raiment was white as the light.
 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Yeshua, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.
 And Yeshua came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.
 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Yeshua only.
 And as they came down from the mountain, Yeshua charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead.
 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?
 And Yeshua answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.
 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.
 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.
 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying,
 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water.
 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.
 Then Yeshua answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.
 And Yeshua rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
 Then came the disciples to Yeshua apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
 And Yeshua said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
 And while they abode in Galilee, Yeshua said unto them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men:
 And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry.
And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to
Peter, and said, Doth
not your master pay tribute?
 He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Yeshua prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers?
 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Yeshua saith unto him, Then are the children free.
 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.
 Then came
Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I
forgive him? till
 Yeshua saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.
 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.
 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.
 The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest.
 And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.
 So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.
 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me:
 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?
 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.
 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
 Then said Yeshua
unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall
hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
 But Yeshua beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?
said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the
regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also
shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.
unto them, All
ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite
the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.
 But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.
 Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.
 Yeshua said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
 Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.
 Then cometh Yeshua with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.
 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.
 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.
 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.
 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.
And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve,
came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief
priests and elders of the people.
 Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.
 And forthwith he came to Yeshua, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him.
 And Yeshua said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Yeshua, and took him.
 And, behold, one of them which were with Yeshua stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest's, and smote off his ear.
 Then said Yeshua unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?
 In that same hour said Yeshua to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.
 But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.
 And they that had laid hold on Yeshua led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled.
 But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest's palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end.
 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Yeshua, to put him to death;
 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,
 And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.
 And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?
 But Yeshua held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Messiah, the Son of God.
 Yeshua saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.
 What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.
 Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands,
 Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Messiah, Who is he that smote thee?
 Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Yeshua of Galilee.
 But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest.
 And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellow was also with Yeshua of Nazareth.
 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.
 And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee.
 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.
 And Peter remembered the word of Yeshua, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.
After these things Yeshua shewed
himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias;
and on this wise shewed he himself.
 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples.
 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
 But when the morning was now come, Yeshua stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Yeshua.
 Then Yeshua saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No.
 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
 Therefore that disciple whom Yeshua loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.
 And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.
 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.
 Yeshua saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.
 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, and hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
 Yeshua saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.
 Yeshua then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise.
 This is now the third time that Yeshua shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.
So when they had dined, Yeshua saith
to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more
than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest
that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed
 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Yeshua saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.
This spake he, signifying by what death he
should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith
unto him, Follow
 Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Yeshua loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?
 Peter seeing him saith to Yeshua, Lord, and what shall this man do?
 Yeshua saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.
 Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Yeshua said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?
This is the disciple which
of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is
 And there are also many other things which Yeshua did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
 And when
they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and
James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew,
James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes,
and Judas the brother of James.
 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Yeshua, and with his brethren.
 And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,)
 Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Yeshua.
 For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry.
 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.
 And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.
 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.
 Wherefore of these men which have companied with us all the time that the Lord Yeshua went in and out among us,
 Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection.
 And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
 And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen,
 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.
 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with
one accord in one place.
 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?
 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?
 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.
 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.
 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God,I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Yeshua of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:
 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.
 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.
 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Messiah to sit on his throne;
 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Messiah, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.
 This Yeshua hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.
 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Yeshua, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Messiah.
 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Yeshua the Messiah for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.
 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.
 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.
 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer,
being the ninth hour.
 And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;
 Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.
 And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.
 And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.
 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Yeshua the Messiah of Nazareth rise up and walk.
 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ancle bones received strength.
 And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.
 And all the people saw him walking and praising God:
 And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.
 And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon's, greatly wondering.
 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?
 The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Yeshua; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go.
 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you;
 And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.
 And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.
 And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers.
 But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Messiah should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.
 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
 And he shall send Yeshua the Messiah, which before was preached unto you:
 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.
 Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days.
 Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.
 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Yeshua, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.
And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and
the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them,
 Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Yeshua the resurrection from the dead.
 And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide.
 Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.
 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes,
 And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the 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 by what name, have ye done this?
 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, 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 Yeshua the Messiah 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.
 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Yeshua.
 And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.
 But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves,
 Saying, What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it.
 But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name.
 And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Yeshua.
 But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye.
 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.
 So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding nothing how they might punish them, because of the people: for all men glorified God for that which was done.
 For the man was above forty years old, on whom this miracle of healing was shewed.
 And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them.
 And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:
 Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?
 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Messiah.
 For of a truth against thy holy child Yeshua, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,
 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.
 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,
 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Yeshua.
 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.
 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Yeshua: and great grace was upon them all.
 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,
 And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.
 And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus,
 Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostles' feet.
But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife,
sold a possession,
 And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet.
 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?
 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.
 And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.
 And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him.
 And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.
 And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much.
 Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out.
 Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband.
 And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things.
 And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch.
 And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them.
 And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.)
 Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.
 There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.
 Then the high priest rose up, and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation,
 And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison.
 But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said,
 Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life.
 And when they heard that, they entered into the temple early in the morning, and taught. But the high priest came, and they that were with him, and called the council together, and all the senate of the children of Israel and sent to the prison to have them brought.
 But when the officers came, and found them not in the prison, they returned, and told,
 Saying, The prison truly found we shut with all safety, and the keepers standing without before the doors: but when we had opened, we found no man within.
 Now when the high priest and the captain of the temple and the chief priests heard these things, they doubted of them whereunto this would grow.
 Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people.
 Then went the captain with the officers, and brought them without violence: for they feared the people, lest they should have been stoned.
 And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them,
 Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us.
 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
 The God of our fathers raised up Yeshua, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.
 Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.
Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received
the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:
 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:
 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Yeshua.)
 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.
 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,
 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.
 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.
 Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.
 Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.
 For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.
 Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me.
 And they, when they had testified and preached the word of the Lord, returned to Jerusalem, and preached the gospel in many villages of the Samaritans.
Acts.9  And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,  And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.
And it came to pass, as Peter passed throughout all quarters, he came down also to the
saints which dwelt at Lydda.
 And there he found a certain man named Aeneas, which had kept his bed eight years, and was sick of the palsy.
 And Peter said unto him, Aeneas, Yeshua the Messiah maketh thee whole: arise, and make thy bed. And he arose immediately.
 And all that dwelt at Lydda and Saron saw him, and turned to the Lord.
 Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and almsdeeds which she did.
 And it came to pass in those days, that she was sick, and died: whom when they had washed, they laid her in an upper chamber.
 And forasmuch as Lydda was nigh to Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there, they sent unto him two men, desiring him that he would not delay to come to them.
 Then Peter arose and went with them. When he was come, they brought him into the upper chamber: and all the widows stood by him weeping, and shewing the coats and garments which Dorcas made, while she was with them.
 But Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down, and prayed; and turning him to the body said, Tabitha, arise. And she opened her eyes: and when she saw Peter, she sat up.
 And he gave her his hand, and lifted her up, and when he had called the saints and widows, presented her alive.
 And it was known throughout all Joppa; and many believed in the Lord.
 And it came to pass, that he tarried many days in Joppa with one Simon a tanner.
There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band
called the Italian band,
 A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway.
 He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius.
 And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God.
 And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter:
 He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side: he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do.
 And when the angel which spake unto Cornelius was departed, he called two of his household servants, and a devout soldier of them that waited on him continually;
 And when he had declared all these things unto them, he sent them to Joppa.
 On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour:
 And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance,
 And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:
 Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.
 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.
 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.
 This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven.
 Now while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean, behold, the men which were sent from Cornelius had made inquiry for Simon's house, and stood before the gate,
 And called, and asked whether Simon, which was surnamed Peter, were lodged there.
 While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee.
 Arise therefore, and get thee down, and go with them, doubting nothing: for I have sent them.
 Then Peter went down to the men which were sent unto him from Cornelius; and said, Behold, I am he whom ye seek: what is the cause wherefore ye are come?
 And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth God, and of good report among all the nation of the Jews, was warned from God by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee.
 Then called he them in, and lodged them. And on the morrow Peter went away with them, and certain brethren from Joppa accompanied him.
 And the morrow after they entered into Caesarea. And Cornelius waited for them, and had called together his kinsmen and near friends.
 And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him.
 But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man.
 And as he talked with him, he went in, and found many that were come together.
 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.
 Therefore came I unto you without gainsaying, as soon as I was sent for: I ask therefore for what intent ye have sent for me?
 And Cornelius said, Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and, behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing,
 And said, Cornelius, thy prayer is heard, and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God.
 Send therefore to Joppa, and call hither Simon, whose surname is Peter; he is lodged in the house of one Simon a tanner by the sea side: who, when he cometh, shall speak unto thee.
 Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come. Now therefore are we all here present before God, to hear all things that are commanded thee of God.
 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.
 The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Yeshua the Messiah: (he is Lord of all:)
 That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;
 How God anointed Yeshua of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
 And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:
 Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;
 Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.
 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.
 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.
 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.
 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter,
 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?
 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.
And the apostles and brethren that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had
also received the word of God.
 And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended with him,
 Saying, Thou wentest in to men uncircumcised, and didst eat with them.
 But Peter rehearsed the matter from the beginning, and expounded it by order unto them, saying,
 I was in the city of Joppa praying: and in a trance I saw a vision, A certain vessel descend, as it had been a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came even to me:
 Upon the which when I had fastened mine eyes, I considered, and saw fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
 And I heard a voice saying unto me, Arise, Peter; slay and eat.
 But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time entered into my mouth.
 But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.
 And this was done three times: and all were drawn up again into heaven.
 And, behold, immediately there were three men already come unto the house where I was, sent from Caesarea unto me.
 And the spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting. Moreover these six brethren accompanied me, and we entered into the man's house:
 And he shewed us how he had seen an angel in his house, which stood and said unto him, Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter;
 Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved.
 And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning.
 Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.
 Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Yeshua the Messiah; what was I, that I could withstand God?
 When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.
 And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.
Peter meets Saul
 Then after three years I Saul went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.
 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter; (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:) But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?  We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles,  Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
 Peter, an apostle of Yeshua the Messiah, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,  Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Yeshua the Messiah: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
End of the letter:
Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace be with you all that are in Messiah Yeshua. Amen.
Peter, a servant and an apostle of Yeshua the Messiah,
to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the
righteousness of God and our Saviour Yeshua
the Messiah:  Grace and peace
be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Yeshua
 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
End of the letter:
Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Yeshua the Messiah. To him be glory both now and for ever.
The life of Peter we only know in part. I am sure many other events and happenings occurred with our beloved brother Peter, (Simon, Cephas)
