NIPTO, Day 156

It's soo late. I'm tired. We sang this song tonight... and it's pretty great. (Especially the "Jesus, Today I'm so tired" verse!)

I'm going to do NIPTO... and then I'm going to see what time it is. And if I have time, I might write a separate post about the past 2ish days.
Acts 5:17-24
17Then the high priest and all his associates, who were members of the party of the Sadducees, were filled with jealousy.

Jealousy = a boo hiss. That's 'bout it.

18They arrested the apostles and put them in the public jail. 19But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the doors of the jail and brought them out. 20"Go, stand in the temple courts," he said, "and tell the people the full message of this new life."
21At daybreak they entered the temple courts, as they had been told, and began to teach the people.
When the high priest and his associates arrived, they called together the Sanhedrin—the full assembly of the elders of Israel—and sent to the jail for the apostles.

Sooo the people who were in charge got jealous. They arrested the apostles who had been teaching and put them in the "county jail." That's pretty basic.
But then: an angel came to them and opened the doors to the jail cell/jail and told them to go to the temple (where they had been arrested, I think) and tell everyone about the good news of the gospel (which meanse "good news").

So at daybreak they went to the temple like usual and they started to talk. And then a bunch of the big high&mighty guys came around and called together the "high court" and then sent people to the jail to get the apostles that had been arrested.

22But on arriving at the jail, the officers did not find them there. So they went back and reported, 23"We found the jail securely locked, with the guards standing at the doors; but when we opened them, we found no one inside." 24On hearing this report, the captain of the temple guard and the chief priests were puzzled, wondering what would come of this.

So they got to the jail and the people couldn't find them! So they went back to the high&mighty guys and told them what was up. They told them that the jail was "securely locked" and that the "guards [were] standing at the doors" but that no one was inside the cell.
When the Head Honcho heard that, he was puzzled. Confused. They didn't know what was actually going on. And we won't find out either until tomorrow. Unless you keep reading in Acts. Which I would encourage you to do. I'm just super tired.

I might be tired, but I think I'm going to do a quick post about the past couple days.
