About that time, Herod, the king, laid violent hands on some who belonged to the church.  He killed James, the brother of John, with the sword and, when he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Peter, also.  This was during the days of Unleavened Bread.  And, when he had seized him, he put him in prison, delivering him over to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending, after the Passover, to bring him out to the people.  So, Peter was kept in prison, but earnest prayer for him was made to God by the church.  (Acts 12.1-5)
