26 My brothers, you descendants of Abrahams family, and others who fear God, to us* the message of this salvation has been sent.
27Because the residents of Jerusalem and their leaders did not recognize him or understand the words of the prophets that are read every sabbath, they fulfilled those words by condemning him.
28Even though they found no cause for a sentence of death, they asked Pilate to have him killed.
29When they had carried out everything that was written about him, they took him down from the tree and laid him in a tomb.
30But God raised him from the dead;
31and for many days he appeared to those who came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, and they are now his witnesses to the people.
32And we bring you the good news that what God promised to our ancestors
33he has fulfilled for us, their children, by raising Jesus; as also it is written in the second psalm,
You are my Son;
today I have begotten you.
