Acts 4:8-12. Following on the healing of a cripple in the name of Jesus, Peter affirms the heart of Christian faith: “There is no salvation through anyone else.” (This does not mean, however, that there is no salvation outside the Church, as Vatican II affirmed.)

In Christian imagery, this is Jesus’ song of resurrection.
