“By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has completely healed him…”
It was not the strength of Peter’s faith that healed the lame man. It was the healing power of the life-giving name of Jesus of Nazareth. Peter’s confidence was in the One he had seen performing countless miracles during the previous three and a half years. No other name possesses such power.
