Bible: Acts 13:26-41

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. 13:38 Therefore let it be known to you, brothers, that through this one 46  forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, 13:39 and by this one 47  everyone who believes is justified 48  from everything from which the law of Moses could not justify 49  you. 50  13:40 Watch out, 51  then, that what is spoken about by 52  the prophets does not happen to you:

13:41Look, you scoffers; be amazed and perish! 53 

For I am doing a work in your days,

a work you would never believe, even if someone tells you.’ 54
