Bible: Acts 13:26-37
13:26 Brothers, 1 descendants 2 of Abraham’s family, 3 and those Gentiles among you who fear God, 4 the message 5 of this salvation has been sent to us. 13:27 For the people who live in Jerusalem and their rulers did not recognize 6 him, 7 and they fulfilled the sayings 8 of the prophets that are read every Sabbath by condemning 9 him. 10 13:28 Though 11 they found 12 no basis 13 for a death sentence, 14 they asked Pilate to have him executed. 13:29 When they had accomplished 15 everything that was written 16 about him, they took him down 17 from the cross 18 and placed him 19 in a tomb. 13:30 But God raised 20 him from the dead, 13:31 and 21 for many days he appeared to those who had accompanied 22 him from Galilee to Jerusalem. These 23 are now his witnesses to the people. 13:32 And we proclaim to you the good news about the promise to our ancestors, 24 13:33 that this promise 25 God has fulfilled to us, their children, by raising 26 Jesus, as also it is written in the second psalm, ‘You are my Son; 27 today I have fathered you.’ 28 13:34 But regarding the fact that he has raised Jesus 29 from the dead, never 30 again to be 31 in a state of decay, God 32 has spoken in this way: ‘I will give you 33 the holy and trustworthy promises 34 made to David.’ 35 13:35 Therefore he also says in another psalm, 36 ‘You will not permit your Holy One 37 to experience 38 decay.’ 39 13:36 For David, after he had served 40 God’s purpose in his own generation, died, 41 was buried with his ancestors, 42 and experienced 43 decay, 13:37 but the one 44 whom God raised up did not experience 45 decay.
