Acts 3:17-26 New King James Version (NKJV)

17 “Yet now, brethren, I know that you did it in ignorance, as did also your rulers. 18 But those things which God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets, that the Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled. 19 Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, 20 and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, 21 whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. 22 For Moses truly said to the fathers, ‘The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brethren. Him you shall hear in all things, whatever He says to you. 23 And it shall be that every soul who will not hear that Prophet shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.’ 24 Yes, and all the prophets, from Samuel and those who follow, as many as have spoken, have also foretold these days. 25 You are sons of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying to Abraham, ‘And in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed.’ 26 To you first, God, having raised up His Servant Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from your iniquities.”

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

17 They did not know the truth, if they did then they would have followed Him rather then want to put Him to death; it was the Lord’s will for them to hand Him over.

18 It had to happen it seems bad that Christ died a horrible death but He had to so we might be saved His own would have to turn on Him, He would have to be betrayed and die for our sins so we can live by Him. The message of Christ coming to die was first mentioned in the Garden of Eden but it would not be clear until He died.

19 To turn to Christ and accept Him as Lord is to turn from our sins or to repent. We need His blood to cover our sins these is the only way we can have a conversion with the Lord. We are not worthy to be in the Lord presence but because Christ died for us we can thru Him by grace and faith and love.

20 The message of the gospel had been preached to those around Judea perhaps more than any other place in the world, most of Jesus; teaching was done to them, the early church preached to them, Peter had preached to them earlier, the witnesses Pentecost, Christ’s ministry but yet they refused Him. Peter tries again. As Long as we are called by God to do something we should keep doing it even if we don’t see results, He has a purpose for what He wants done even if we don’t see or understand it.

21 Jesus will return one day to finish everything and to bring His earthly kingdom.

22 This Prophet was seen as the Christ or Messiah which Jews still await today. Jesus is the one Moses was talking about Peter saw it and many others have but there are those who still are awaiting a sign or someone to come, He will come again but it will be to late for those who don’t know Him because they will fall for someone else since they don’t see the truth, they fall for lies.

23 By hear it means to listen to follow many may hear the word but reject the Word. Many will have no excuse that they did not hear but they refused to listen, many will reject Him.

24 The bible points to the need for a Savior one to come, Christ is the one who was to come and He will come again. All scripture points to Christ, He is the Word.

25 The Jews themselves were fulfillments of prophecies, most in fact referred to something that influence or was about the Jewish people. The bible was written by mostly Jewish born people, however by Christ we non-Jewish can now be adopted into the family by Him.

26 The greatest blessing God has given us is Jesus, He is the best gift ever given because only by Him can we be saved.
