The Beautiful Gate is the site of the first healing Jesus' disciples facilitate after Pentecost. Peter and John encounter a man lame from birth, disqualified and excluded outside the temple. In this prototype miracle, care for the poor and marginalized, respectful presence, relational connectedness, empowerment, and holistic healing in Jesus' name coalesce, freeing the man to move through the gate, into the company of those who had previously excluded him. Once inside, the apostles offer a prophetic challenge, calling people to confession, repentance, and conversion.

We are sent out to join Jesus in his global liberation movement. Let's explore what this looked like then and what it means for now.
