You know the eventsa that took place throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee after the baptism that John preached:
how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and curing all who were under the tyranny of the Devil, because God was with Him.

God raised up this man on the third day and permitted Him to be seen,
not by all the people, but by us, witnesses appointed beforehand by God, who ate and drank with Him after He rose from the dead.
He commanded us to preach to the people, and to solemnly testify that He is the One appointed by God to be the Judge of the living and the dead.
All the prophets testify about Him that through His name everyone who believes in Him will receive forgiveness of sins."
