You know the message1 God sent to the people of Israel, telling the good news2 of peace3 through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all.437
You know what has happened throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John preached--
how God anointed5 Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing6 all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.739
"We are witnesses8 of everything he did in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They killed him by hanging him on a tree,940
but God raised him from the dead10 on the third day and caused him to be seen.
He was not seen by all the people,11 but by witnesses whom God had already chosen--by us who ate12 and drank with him after he rose from the dead.
He commanded us to preach to the people13 and to testify that he is the one whom God appointed as judge of the living and the dead.1443
All the prophets testify about him15 that everyone16 who believes17 in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name."18
