"Ananias & Sapphira"
Acts 4:32 - 5:16 or Story 126 in The Gospel Story Bible
Why were people giving their money to the apostles? (They were giving money that came from selling everything they had to support the work of the church. The apostles were giving the money to those who were in need.)
What did Ananias & Sapphira do wrong? (They lied about how much money they were giving to the apostles. They kept some of the money for themselves.)
Who did they lie to? How did Peter know? (Peter, bot most importantly God; The Holy Spirit made sure Peter knew what had happened.)
Why did God have to kill Ananias & Sapphira? (This is rather harsh to say, but we must remember that God is the author of life and He is the very same God as He always has been. He was not going to allow His church to be corrupted.)
Praise God for the way He pours out His Spirit for everyone who believes!
Q.7. In how many persons does this one God exist?

"The Lame Beggar Walks"
Acts 3:1-4:22 or Story 125 in The Gospel Story Bible
Who was the crippled man? What was he doing? (A man who couldn't walk since he was born. He was brought to the temple gate everyday to beg for money from those who went inside the temple)
What happened when Peter and John talked to the beggar? (They couldn't offer any money, but they offered something much greater: They called in the name of Jesus for the man to get up and walk, and he did. He walked, leaped, and even danced all the way through the temple praising God)
What did the people think when they saw him? What did Peter tell the crowd? (They were amazed & in awe; If they repented from their sins, they would be forgiven & blotted out like they never existed. Then the Lord's presence would be with them forever)
Ask God to help you believe like the crippled man & rejoice like He did!
Q.6. Are there more gods than one?
A. There is only one God.
