Acts 12:1-4

James Killed and Peter Imprisoned 1About that time King Herod laid violent hands upon some who belonged to the church.2He had James, the brother of John, killed with the sword.3After he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Peter also. (This was during the festival of Unleavened Bread.)4When he had seized him, he put him in prison and handed him over to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending to bring him out to the people after the Passover.
