This verse definitely clears up any misunderstanding that says there are many ways to God. Our salvation is because of the Love that Jesus portrayed on the cross so that we could spend eternity with God. The verses that follow talk about how the religious leaders got angry and were stirred up by this statement from Peter and John. They could not believe that these men knew what they were talking about and plotted to "silence them". The leaders knew that these men had been companions of Jesus and they saw the miracles that were happening and just couldn't wrap their head around the simplicity of the love and grace of Jesus. RELIGION was the religious leaders, rulers and religious scholars driving force and they missed the componant of loving people to the message of repentance.
Let's remember as we love and reach out to people around us that don't know the message of salvation that we don't geting trapped in the condemnation message of repentance and we stick to the simple message of the cross and what Jesus did for our salvation.
Go forth and love!
