‘this thing’

16 “What are we going to do with these men?” they asked. “Everyone living in Jerusalem knows they have performed a notable sign, and we cannot deny it. 17 But to stop this thing from spreading any further among the people, we must warn them to speak no longer to anyone in this name.” Acts 4:16-17 NIV

I couldn’t help smiling when I heard this read in Church on Sunday. I wonder if those leaders had any idea how far and wide ‘this thing’ would actually spread?

2000 years later on the other side of the world, a 40 year old Gentile woman has believed in ‘this thing’, this person Jesus who overcame the grave, offering healing and salvation to all.
