Bible: Acts 13:27-39

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