Early church challenge #1: direct opposition

After the inception of the church, Acts 3-4 brings us to the first challenge of the early church – direct opposition. 2 verses

So they seized them and put them in jail until the next day (for it was already evening). But many of those who had listened to the message believed, and the number of the men came to about five thousand.
Acts 4:3-4

When they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and discovered that they were uneducated and ordinary men, they were amazed and recognized these men had been with Jesus. And because they saw the man who had been healed standing with them, they had nothing to say against this… For the man, on whom this miraculous sign of healing had been performed, was over forty years old.
Acts 4:13-14, 22
