Bible: Acts 10:34-43

10:34 Then Peter started speaking: 1  “I now truly understand that God does not show favoritism in dealing with people, 2  10:35 but in every nation 3  the person who fears him 4  and does what is right 5  is welcomed before him. 10:36 You know 6  the message 7  he sent to the people 8  of Israel, proclaiming the good news of peace 9  through 10  Jesus Christ 11  (he is Lord 12  of all) – 10:37 you know what happened throughout Judea, beginning from Galilee after the baptism that John announced: 13  10:38 with respect to Jesus from Nazareth, 14  that 15  God anointed him with the Holy Spirit and with power. He 16  went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, 17  because God was with him. 18  10:39 We 19  are witnesses of all the things he did both in Judea 20  and in Jerusalem. 21  They 22  killed him by hanging him on a tree, 23  10:40 but 24  God raised him up on the third day and caused him to be seen, 25  10:41 not by all the people, but by us, the witnesses God had already chosen, 26  who ate and drank 27  with him after he rose from the dead. 10:42 He 28  commanded us to preach to the people and to warn 29  them 30  that he is the one 31  appointed 32  by God as judge 33  of the living and the dead. 10:43 About him all the prophets testify, 34  that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins 35  through his name.”
