  1. 1. New Testament Vistas
  2. 2. Peter’s Sermon
  3. 3. Acts 2:22-39“Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazarethwas a man accredited by God to you by miracles,wonders and signs, which God did among youthrough him, as you yourselves know. This manwas handed over to you by God’s set purpose andforeknowledge; and you, with the help of wickedmen, put him to death by nailing him to thecross. But God raised him from the dead, freeinghim from the agony of death, because it wasimpossible for death to keep its hold on him.
  4. 4. Acts 2:22-39David said about him: “ ‘I saw the Lord alwaysbefore me. Because he is at my right hand, I willnot be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and mytongue rejoices; my body also will live in hope,because you will not abandon me to the grave,nor will you let your Holy One see decay. Youhave made known to me the paths of life; youwill fill me with joy in your presence. ’
  5. 5. Acts 2:22-39“Brothers, I can tell you confidently that thepatriarch David died and was buried, and histomb is here to this day. But he was a prophetand knew that God had promised him on oaththat he would place one of his descendants on histhrone. Seeing what was ahead, he spoke of theresurrection of the Christ, that he was notabandoned to the grave, nor did his body seedecay. God has raised this Jesus to life, and weare all witnesses of the fact.
  6. 6. Acts 2:22-39Exalted to the right hand of God, he has receivedfrom the Father the promised Holy Spirit and haspoured out what you now see and hear. ForDavid did not ascend to heaven, and yet he said,“ ‘The Lord said to my Lord: “Sit at my right handuntil I make your enemies a footstool for yourfeet.” ’ “Therefore let all Israel be assured of this:God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified,both Lord and Christ.”
  7. 7. Acts 2:22-39When the people heard this, they were cut to theheart and said to Peter and the other apostles,“Brothers, what shall we do?” Peter replied,“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in thename of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of yoursins. And you will receive the gift of the HolySpirit. The promise is for you and your childrenand for all who are far off –for all whom the Lordour God will call.”
