The Preaching of Jesus in Acts

Posted by Matt Postiff March 16, 2012 on Matt Postiff's Blog under Bible Texts 

Reading through the book of Acts lately, I have been struck by the preaching of the gospel in the early chapters. These first Christian sermons talk about sin and forgiveness and repentance (2:38, 3:19), but they focus even more upon the identity and activity of our Lord. Here are some examples:

  • Jesus: attested by God through miraculous signs, 2:22, 4:30
  • Jesus: delivered up and crucified, 2:23
  • Jesus: raised from the dead, 2:24
  • Jesus: made Lord and Messiah, 2:36
  • Jesus: glorified by God after being delivered and denied by the people, 3:13-14
  • Jesus: the prince of life, killed and raised again, 3:15
  • Jesus: the name by which miraculous healings in Acts were performed, 3:16, 4:10
  • Jesus: the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy, 3:18
  • Jesus: coming again to restore all things, 3:20-21
  • Jesus: the message of resurrection from the dead for all people, 4:2
  • Jesus: the only one by whom someone can be saved from sin, 4:12
  • Jesus: the focal point of opposition from Herod, Pilate, the Gentiles, and the Jews, 4:27
