Courage is a popular virtue. Amazon.com lists over a half-million books for sale with “courage” in the title. Yet, for all the popular wisdom these books offer, one fact remains. Courage is a confident display of power—to engage when others cower. And those questioning Peter and John that day saw an incredible display of courage, uncommon for “ordinary men.” It wasn’t something that mustered up in them, but rather Someone that rubbed off on them. Exposure to the ultimate source of power (Jer 32:17) gave these ordinary men extraordinary courage.
