Acts 11:27 — Acts 12:13
27 And in these days prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch.
28 And one of them named Agabus rose up and signified through the Spirit that there was about to be a great famine over the whole inhabited earth, which occurred during the time of Claudius.
29 And the disciples, according to how one was prospered, determined, each one of them, to send things for dispensing to the brothers dwelling in Judea,
30 Which also they did, sending it to the elders through the hand of Barnabas and Saul.
1 Now about that time Herod the king laid hands on some from the church in order to mistreat them.
2 And he did away with James, the brother of John, with the sword.
3 And when he saw that it was pleasing to the Jews, he went on to arrest Peter also (now those were the days of Unleavened Bread),
4 Whom also he seized and put in prison, delivering him to four quaternions of soldiers to guard him, intending after the Passover to bring him out to the people.
5 So then Peter was kept in the prison; but prayer was being made fervently by the church to God concerning him.
6 And when Herod was about to bring him forward, that night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, abound with two chains; and guards before the door were keeping the prison.
7 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood by him, and a light shined in the cell; and he struck Peter’s side and roused him, saying, Rise up quickly. And his chains fell off his hands.
8 And the angel said to him, Gird yourself and tie on your sandals. And he did so. And he said to him, Throw your cloak around you and follow me.
9 And he went out and followed him; yet he did not know that what was taking place through the angel was real, but thought that he was seeing a vision.
10 And passing the first guard and the second, they came to the iron gate that leads into the city, which opened of itself to them. And going out, they went forward one lane; and immediately the angel departed from him.
11 And Peter came to himself and said, Now I know truly that the Lord has sent forth His angel and rescued me out of Herod’s hand and from all the expectation of the Jewish people.
12 And when he became aware of this, he went to the house of Mary, the mother of John, who was surnamed Mark, where there was a considerable number assembled together and praying.
13 And when he knocked at the door of the entry, a maiden named Rhoda came to listen.
