What are convictions? Why do we need to have them? What should Christians base their convictions off of?
Convictions are fixed beliefs that aren't open to question. We need to have them because everyone needs to have their own opinion in beliefs in what they think is necessary and what the think is not.

What is the Sanhedrin? How do they feel about the growth of the church? Why?

Gamaliel was a Pharisee that was respected by all the people. He warned the Sanhedrin about what they were doing to Jesus' followers. He told them to lay low so that it didn't come back to them so harshly.
How is a Christian to respond to persecution? Give three responses.
Christians should recognize persecution and embrace it. Christians should stay humble and accept that people might not look at us the way Jesus does. Christians should love our enemies even though they might hurt us.
What is the theme for lesson 3?
A hypocrite can only simulate goodness; they do not actually possess it.
Where do we get the meaning of the word hypocrite? Why did Jesus, John the Baptist, and other disciples connect this word to the teachers of the law, Pharisees, and Sadducees?
We get the meaning of hypocrite from the Greek word hypokrites which means "stage actor, pretender, dissembler". They connected it to the teachers of the law because they are hypocritical in the sense that they lie to themselves to please others.
Where are other places in the Bible we can find the word hypocrite being used? Be able to list AT LEAST 2 and explain the meaning of the verses.
We can find it being used in Matthew 15:7, Psalm 26:4, and Matthew 22:18.
What can we take away from the story of Ananias and Sapphira?
We can take away how bad it is to lie to God and we need to never do those things.
What was the lie that they told to Peter?
They told Peter that all the money they brought to the apostles was all they had, but they actually kept some for themselves at their home.
What was the consequence of their sin and why was God so "harsh"?
The consequence for their sin is that they immediately fell down and died. God was "harsh" because he wanted to make sure that the people understand how powerful the Holy Spirit is.
How can we apply this lesson to our lives?
We can apply this lesson to our lives because we can use it to encourage us to always tell the truth and stay strong in our faith.
