Acts 5-8

In chapter 5 beginning with verse 33, Gamaliel explains that there have been other leaders who have had followers but after their death the movement died down. He cautions the leaders about persecuting the followers of Jesus because he may really be from God. He reminds them that if this is God's doing, it cannot be stopped. We then read about how Jesus' followers with the help of the Holy Spirit will not be stopped. God even goes as far as stopping one of the major persecutors of the church, Saul who later becomes Paul. Saul had tried to stop of the message of Jesus and he is literally stopped in his tracks and then begins spreading the Good News about Jesus!
