But this is how God fulfilled4 what he had foretold5 through all the prophets,6 saying that his Christa would suffer.719
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out,8 that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,
and that he may send the Christ,9 who has been appointed for you--even Jesus.
He must remain in heaven10 until the time comes for God to restore everything,11 as he promised long ago through his holy prophets.1222
For Moses said, 'The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own people; you must listen to everything he tells you.1323
Anyone who does not listen to him will be completely cut off from among his people.'b1424
"Indeed, all the prophets15 from Samuel on, as many as have spoken, have foretold these days.
And you are heirs16 of the prophets and of the covenant17 God made with your fathers. He said to Abraham, 'Through your offspring all peoples on earth will be blessed.'c1826
When God raised up19 his servant, he sent him first20 to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways."
