When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. (Acts 4:13 NIV)

What the members of the ruling council of men perceived with their own eyes dumbfounded and flabbergasted them, for what was standing before them were two undistinguished, quite unexceptional common place, run of the mill, with a woeful lack of education, as well as being somewhat inferior, to them, men, Peter and John, full of bold courage, without timidity or fear, and who overwhelmed the council with their presence, causing them to observe and notice that these men exhibited, with distinction, characteristics of speaking and acting with the same authority and power of the one they had interaction with and had been close companions of, so, therefore, they were no longer just ordinary men, but had become extraordinary, because they had been been with Jesus! (Acts 4:13 PDCP)
