Acts 3:13-23 DBY

13 The God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus, whom *ye* delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when *he* had judged that he should be let go.
14 But *ye* denied the holy and righteous one, and asked that a man [that was] a murderer should be granted to you;
15 but the originator a of life ye slew, whom God raised from among [the] dead, whereof *we* are witnesses.

References for Acts 3:15

    • € 3:15 - This word is difficult to render in English. It is a 'leader,' but it is more. It is used for one who begins and sets a matter on. The Greek word occurs four times in the New Testament, here and ch. 5.31; Heb. 2.10; 12.2. In Heb. 12.2 it means, 'he began and finished the whole course;' 'the origin' or 'originator,' though the word is harsh in connexion with life. The word is only used of our Lord.
      16 And, by b faith in his name, his name has made this [man] strong whom ye behold and know; and the faith which is by him has given him this complete soundness in the presence of you all.
