Even As Jesus

And again, there was another church
which denied the Christ;
and they did persecute the true church of Christ,
because of their humility and their belief in Christ;
and they did despise them
because of the many miracles

which were wrought among them.

Therefore they did exercise power and authority
over the disciples of Jesus who did tarry with them,
and they did cast them into prison;
but by the power of the word of God, which was in them,
the prisons were rent in twain, and they went forth
doing mighty miracles among them.

Nevertheless, and notwithstanding all these miracles,
the people did harden their hearts,
and did seek to kill them, even as
the Jews at Jerusalem sought to kill Jesus,
according to his word.
