This scene depicts the verses from Acts 4: 1–21, which recount how Peter and John were found preaching to the people of Jerusalem about Christ, and how a lame man had been healed in His name. The high priests held the apostles in prison overnight, before summoning them to be questioned the following day. Peter and John again proclaimed the power of faith in Christ and, taken aback by their courage, the evidence of the man who had been cured, and the reaction of the crowd, who were praising God for what had happened, the priests let the men go without punishment.

Executed during one of the last years of his life, this painting yet reflects Eeckhout's debt not only to his friend and teacher Rembrandt, but Rembrandt's own master, Pieter Lastman. We are grateful to Prof. Dr. Volker Manuth for his help in the cataloguing of this lot, which will be included in his forthcoming catalogue raisonné.
